Is the iPhone 6s Secretly Waterproof?

Nope. If you’re looking for a waterproof phone, the iPhone 6s certainly isn’t your best option. However, many early adopters have found that this device holds up surprisingly well in the drink. In a recent discovery by iFixit, Apple has added a new strip of glue to act as a gasket. Apple has also seem to have added some silicone around cables that will also help if water gets in. While this helps if water gets in, it won’t make the device waterproof. Just very slightly water resistant. That means that if you drop your device in a puddle you’ll be fine. Could this mean that the iPhone 7 might be water proof? Some rumors say yes but until next year we don’t know for sure.
