Is the iPhone 14 waterproof?

All iPhone 14 models are rated IP68 under IEC standard 60529 (maximum depth of 6 meters up to 30 minutes). This means the iPhone 14 is safe from small amounts of common liquids such as accidental spills, splashes and rain. The device can also survive being submerged at a maximum depth of 6 meters for up to 30 minutes.

Apple lists all its models after the iPhone 7 as "splash, water, and dust resistant" under laboratory conditions. These conditions are not permanent and "might decrease with normal wear," according to Apple. Liquid damage is not covered by your warranty.

Apple suggests avoiding these activities with your iPhone to avoid liquid damage:

  • Swimming or bathing with your iPhone
  • Exposing your iPhone to pressurized water or high velocity water, such as when showering, water skiing, wake boarding, surfing, jet skiing, and so on
  • Using your iPhone in a sauna or steam room
  • Operating your iPhone outside the suggested temperature ranges or in extremely humid conditions
  • Dropping your iPhone or subjecting it to other impacts
  • Disassembling your iPhone, including removing screws

You should also avoid contact with soap, perfume, insect repellent, lotions, solvents and so on. You should wash your device with tap water if it comes in contact with any liquid that is not water.

You can dry your device with lens cloth if it becomes wet. Do not use heat
