iPhone 7

Can I swim with the iPhone 7?

Yes. But not without exception.

An IP67 rating means you can immerse your iPhone 7 in liquid for up to 30 minutes, without worry of damaging it, but only to depths up to 1m.

Want to snap a shot of your kids swimming in the pool this summer? Feel free to wade in the low end, but leave the deep end and the diving board out of it. Keep your iPhone no deeper than 1m (3.28 feet) under the surface.


The iPhone 7 is rated IP67. What does this mean?

An IP rating is made up of two numbers.

The first number in the IP rating pertains to how well a device is protected from solid materials (think sand, dirt, dust and so on).

A rating of 6 means the device is completely protected from dust and other solid materials.

The second number in the IP rating pertains to how well a device is protected from liquids (think soup, milkshakes, beer and, of course, water).

A rating of 7 indicates that the device is protected from immersion in liquids at depths up to 1m for a time period of up to 30 minutes.
