Some intrepid new iPhone 7 users aren’t taking Apple at its word and testing out the new handset’s water resistance. And 9to5Mac has a roundup of some of the more extreme testing.
In the first video, the handset survives a dip in soda, hot coffee, and water. Just to make sure, the user takes the iPhone apart at the end to double check that no liquid has entered inside.
Here’s a clip of the iPhone 7 taking a swim in the ocean. It shouldn’t be much of a spoiler alert, but the phone comes out just fine.
Apple officially notes that both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are IP67 water resistant. That means it can withstand being submerged into 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. But I wouldn’t recommend doing that very often, especially since Apple won’t cover any liquid damage under warranty. You can read Apple’s handling instructions here.
While I don’t plan on dropping my iPhone 7 Plus into the ocean or a morning cup of coffee, it’s good to see that Apple has designed the handsets to come out just fine.
Both handsets officially landed earlier today. You can purchase an iPhone 7 starting at $649 and the iPhone 7 Plus at $769. There are three different memory options – 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB. Along with the two black models, buyers can also select from a silver, rose gold, and gold option.
