iPhone 6

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), who always surprises its fans with new features and outstanding abilities, now has plans of offering devices that can stand water without getting damaged. Recently, a patent has been filed by Apple at the United States Patent and Trademark Office, describing how its various devices – iPhone, iPad and MacBook – can be waterproofed using different methods, says a report from Apple Insider.

Apple could go for ‘full waterproofing’

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is known for taking big steps in hardware, and unlike its competitors, the company could be trying to make a device that is overall waterproof and not just ‘water proof’ to a limited extent. This can be made possible if the internals of the device are coated and sealed while in the process of manufacturing and assembly. The process could require a time period of a year or so for getting implemented properly at the Foxconn and other third-party factories, according to a report from Chinatopix.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is making a great push into the enterprise world, and having an iPhone or an iPad that is waterproof can be very useful for the users. If a device has the capability of withstanding various kinds of terrains, then the businesses will be more inclined towards picking up such a device in large quantities.

A useful feature

Waterproof is also a useful feature for the consumers as well, and companies like Sony and Samsung already making attempts of offering mobiles that are waterproof. Devices face a number of internal issues because of accidents taking place like dropping in water, sometimes even rendering the device completely useless. In such cases waterproofing proves to be a device saver. The devices that are waterproofed are better for use as they not only become safer, but in turn also make insurance cheaper.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 6S, expected later this year, might not come with waterproofing. However, the next launch by the company i.e. the iPhone 7 could be the first device with waterproofing. And the same goes for the other two devices from the company – iPad and MacBook.


  1. The next iPhone could be waterproof… but it may not be water proof.
    Why even bother if you don’t know for sure.

  2. “Companies like Sony and Samsung already making attempts of offering mobiles that are waterproof.”

    It’s not an attempt when Sony has successfully launched multiple Xperia devices in compliance with IP65 and IP68 ratings. It’s been accomplished and realized.
