>But when you completely submerge it, you’re putting stress on every water-resistance gasket in the phone

Really?

Patrick Henry, the 2nd:
Then this is false advertising and Apple should get sued.

With a water resistant phone, there is no reason for it not to be covered under warranty.

Hey Serenity, what about if you film yourself bending the iPhone on purpose, then post it on the internet? Apply the pressure of a Thousand Men when doing so, then write an article lambasting Apple for not making their phone catastrophe-proof.

All these attention-seeking pundits just need something--anything--to write about, don't they? Narcissist pricks.

They state water damage is not covered, but it is buried in the fine print.

It should be illegal to advertise water resistance if it isn't covered by the warranty. If companies want to make phones halfway water resistant, then they shouldn't advertise or even acknowledge the feature.

Never mind the fact that the iPhone commercial with the phone sitting in a puddle of water playing music while the old man dives is in heavy rotation right now.

Ignoring the most eyeroll-inducing bit of hyperbole in a long time from that ad, calling stereo speakers "practically magic."

Interesting that this gets "no comment" from Gruber.

No wait. Not interesting. Predictable.

How long until the flood of posts proclaiming the phone's amazing water resistance properties?

1) It's a feature that it's overall better at dealing with water ingress, but they make it very clear—not just in the fine print—that water damage isn't coverage. Remember they have water sensors, not water pressure sensors so they have no idea if this simply fell in the toilet or sank to the bottom of a deep pool.

2) AC+ replacement coverage is 2x per year, for the 2 years of AC+ coverage, not 2x total.

What a dumb cunt.

Off The Verge:
*drown your iPhone a third time, and you’ll be paying half of your original purchase price for a replacement.*

The monsters.
