Is the iPhone 14 waterproof

You are clicking amazing pool party photos on your iPhone 14, and suddenly it trips from your hand and lands in the pool; the party would stop seeing your iPhone 14 getting dumped in the water. Or, in a different case scenario, you are outside, and it starts raining heavily, you are nowhere near a shelter, and your iPhone 14 is enjoying the waters of rain in your pocket. iPhones might be the best in town compared to other smartphones, but when it comes to your iPhone dripping in water, you and others around you are bound to activate panic mode. 

Sometimes it also depends on which iPhone model you are using. Lately, Apple has been trying hard to give its users the best performance of the iPhone, including making it water-resistant. If your iPhone 14 is water resistant, it might be saved after its trip in the rain. iPhone 14 might be water resistant, but it may not be possible to be waterproof. Let us look at the iPhone 14 model and whether it is waterproof.

Is the iPhone 14 waterproof?

iPhone 14 is technically not waterproof but water-resistant and splash resistant. Now, let us not confuse waterproof and water resistant. There is a fine line between these two terms which people always confuse.

iPhone 14 can withstand water-resistant conditions, which does not make the iPhone waterproof. So, if your iPhone 14 dropped in 6-meter deep water for a maximum of 30 minutes, then there are chances that your iPhone 14 might be saved, with some tweaks, ofcourse.

How do we know that iPhone 14 is water resistant?

You can quickly get to know if your iPhone 14 device is water resistant or not by its IP ratings. For your iPhone to be water-resistant, dust proof, and splash-resistant, it should have an IP68 rating.

IPhone 14 series came with an IP68 rating, meaning that it is water-resistant, dustproof, and splash resistant under IEC standard 60529.

Can you use iPhone 14 underwater?

Please take my advice: don’t leave your iPhone 14 around the water for too long. Since iPhone 14 has an IP68 rating, if your iPhone is drowned in a pool up to 6 meters for almost 30 minutes, then there are chances for your iPhone 14 to be saved. If you want to click a picture underwater that will take only a few seconds, you may do so, but you have to be prepared for its drawbacks if any occur. 

Will Apple cover the cost of water damaged iPhone?

Sadly Apple only covers the warranty of the iPhone if it is resistant to fresh water. Saltwater lie sea or ocean can damage your iPhone, and Apple does not cover water damage as part of the iPhone’s warranty. If you have Apple + care, you will use your two years of the slot to protect the water damage on your iPhone.

Which iPhones are waterproof?

Sadly, no iPhone model is waterproof, but it can be water resistant if it has an IP68 rating, which helps the iPhone withstand almost 6 meters depth of water for 30 minutes.

Until next time, with another topic. Till then, Toodles.
