Wired‘s Brian Barrett:
Over the past few days, you may have seen reports that the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are waterproof. In fact, not just reports; there now exist multiple videos that show Apple’s new smartphones surviving extended periods of water submersion. Those videos aren’t fabrications or pranks. Apple’s new iPhones really do hold up under water, thanks to a brilliant new technique that the company quietly pioneered.
Do not go scuba diving with your iPhone 6s. But it does hold up better if it accidentally takes a dunk.
