How Water Resistant Is the iPhone 14?
The iPhone 14 is touted as being the most water resistant iPhone models yet. But just how water resistant is it?
Water and Dust Rating
The iPhone 14 has an IP68 water and dust rating. This means it is water-resistant in up to 6.5 feet (2 meters) of water for a maximum of 30 minutes. It also means it is fully protected against dust, dirt and sand.
What This Actually Means
This means that the iPhone 14 is protected from accidental splashes, spills, and rain. However, it does not mean that this device is waterproof. It cannot be submerged in water for long periods of time or taken into a shower.
Tips for Waterproofing
Your iPhone 14 can be better protected from water if you take these precautions:
- Use a case: Use a certified water-resistant case like the Apple Silicone Case. This will protect your device from accidental spills.
- Avoid high-pressure water: High-pressure water can damage your device even when fully sealed. Avoid pressure washers or water-jetting devices.
- Don’t take it swimming: Although the iPhone 14 is water-resistant, it is not designed to be taken swimming. The concentration of chlorine or salt water can damage the device.
In conclusion, although the iPhone 14 is well-protected against splashes, spills and rain, it is not waterproof and should be kept away from water for the best performance.
