As we all know, apple phones are very expensive,The price of the highest version even costs more than 10000 yuan. But expensive and expensive benefits, such as Apple phone support IP68 waterproof and dustproof, official website publicity can be found in

However, an iPhone XS Max recently questioned Apple's false propaganda, because his phone was damaged by water for two minutes,Moreover, apple does not provide warranty service, and the maintenance costs 4600 yuan at the user's own expense, which is equivalent to the price of a high-end domestic mobile phone.


however,Apple responded by saying iPhone meant

It is understood that the iPhone XS Max is a high-end smartphone released by apple on September 13, 2018. It supports IP68 waterproof and dust-proof, which is the highest level of connector waterproof grade standard.

On Apple's official website, this is how to promote the waterproof performance of iPhone


However, at the bottom of the official website, there is a line of small words saying:

IPhone 11, iPhone 11 pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are splash proof, water resistant and dust-proof. Under the controlled laboratory conditions, the effects of iPhone 11 pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max reach IP68 level under the standard of IEC60529 (the longest stay time under the water of the deepest 4 meters can be up to 30 minutes) The effect reached IP68 level under IEC60529 standard (the longest stay time is 30 minutes at the deepest 2 meters).

Splash proof, water-resistant and dust-proof functions are not permanent, and the protective performance may decline due to daily wear and tear.

Do not charge the iPhone in wet conditions; refer to the instruction manual for cleaning and drying instructions. Damage due to immersion in liquid is not covered by the warranty.


As Apple's statement States, the waterproof performance of the machine will be declining, not permanent.

But this one

According to the author's observation, every year, a large number of users believe in the waterproof performance of the iPhone because of the statement on Apple's official website, so they randomly clean the iPhone or even place it in the water, eventually causing damage to the machine.

From this point of view, Apple may lack water, there is the suspicion of false propaganda.

In fact, in daily life scenarios, IP68 level under IEC60529 standard is not applicable, because there are great differences between daily life scenarios and laboratory scenarios.

In order to avoid such a situation for consumers in the future, the author strongly suggests that Apple's official website modify the waterproof performance of iPhone.

Then highlight the small print statement to make it easier for consumers to notice and minimize the user's misuse.

After all, the maintenance cost of the iPhone is not low. For most consumers, it is not easy to pay for the repair cost of iPhone flooding.
