Many flagship phones now have the waterproof function of life, so is iPhone8 waterproof? What is the waterproof level of iPhone8? Here I will introduce to you.
Is iPhone8 waterproof?
The new-generation iPhone 8 continues the characteristics of the previous-generation product, and can theoretically be used underwater for 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter. However, the iPhone will wear out during use, and its water resistance will gradually decrease.
What is the waterproof rating of iPhone8?
The iPhone8 waterproof rating is IP67 waterproof , and IP67 waterproof is not the highest waterproof rating.
According to Apple's terms, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are splash, water, and dust resistant, and have been tested under controlled laboratory conditions to achieve an IP67 rating under the IEC 60529 standard. Splash, water, and dust protection are not permanently effective, and protective performance may be reduced due to daily wear and tear.
What does iP67 mean?
IPXX, where XX is two Arabic numbers, the first marked number indicates the level of contact protection and foreign object protection, the second marked number indicates the level of waterproof protection, and the larger the number, the better the protection level.
The first X indicates the dustproof level, and different numbers represent different dustproof levels, as follows.
0: No protection
1: Prevent large solids from invading
2: Prevents intrusion of medium-sized solids
3: Prevent small solids from entering
4: Prevent solid objects larger than 1mm from entering
5: Prevent the accumulation of harmful dust
6: completely prevent dust from entering
The second X indicates the waterproof level (the higher the value, the better the waterproof performance)
0: No protection
1: Water droplets have no effect on the shell
2: When the shell is tilted to 15 degrees, water droplets drip into the shell without effect
3: Water or rain has no effect from the 60 degree corner to the shell
4: The liquid is splashed into the shell from any direction without harm.
5: Rinse with water without any harm
6: Can be used in the cabin environment
7: Resistant to water immersion in a short time (1m)
8: Long time immersion in water under a certain pressure
Therefore, IP67 means that it can completely prevent dust from entering and can be immersed in water for a short time under a certain pressure. For example, iPhone 8 can theoretically be used in water within 1 meter depth for 30 minutes. IP68 is several times more waterproof, which means that it can completely prevent dust from entering and can be immersed in water for a long time under a certain pressure.
Do not charge your iPhone while it is wet. Damage caused by immersion in liquid is not covered by the warranty.
In layman's terms, iPhone 8 water is not guaranteed. Therefore, during daily use, users must pay attention to not deliberately staying in the water, because it is likely to cause internal water ingress, and water ingress is not guaranteed.
The above is the iPhone 8 waterproof I introduced. What is the waterproof level of the iPhone 8? I hope it will help you.Hell
