The benefits of having a waterproof iPhone 7

Since Apple proudly launched the new iPhone 7 – their first phone to be water-resistant – people started to wonder whether they could go for a swim with their iPhone! 🙂 Well not really, no!

Although the new iPhone 7 and 7 plus comes with an IP 67 certification, which stands for water and dust protection for up to 1 meter and up to 30 minutes, that doesn’t make your iPhone waterproof nor resistant to salt-water or pressured water. Despite the IP 67 certification the standard one-year limited warranty from Apple does not cover against water and liquid damage.

So will shooting photos underwater with your iPhone remain a dream? Don’t worry, the good news and solution is to get a top-notch iPhone 7 waterproof case.

That’s the only way to ensure maximal protection against damages from salt-water and let you use the iPhone 7 enhanced camera functionality underwater without fear.

What features to look for a good iPhone 7 waterproof case

Having your iPhone dry and clean while swimming underwater and taking photos is cool, but what about dropping your phone or getting it covered with dust?

What if the iPhone 7 waterproof case came with a combination of high protection against water, dust and drop?

This would mean using your iPhone in any circumstances, with no fear of dropping it into your bath tub, splashing it at the pool, getting it covered with sand at the beach or getting it wet while jogging in the rain.

We all love to take our iPhone with us anywhere; it’s handy and fun to have it all the time and snap a photo here ad there within seconds. As an iPhone 6 plus user myself I know how anxious I feel whenever I use my phone in the outdoors.

I recently tried out the Evo Tactical TX, a rugged case against extreme drop (up to 4 meters fall) and dust protection. I like the rugged external material that gives a firm grip but at the same time a comfortable touch with a slim and neat design.

I have now taken a look at their brand-new product: the Evo Aqua waterproof case for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

This high-tech rugged case offers a more effective protection than market competitors thanks to their state-of-the-art innovation both in the materials used as well as in the tests for impact shock and durability. Here are the main features of the iPhone 7 Evo Aqua waterproof case:

  1. Hi Michela,

    Good to know that Apple doesn’t suggest you swim with it, because I know some of those addicts would next demand a water clip to a bathing suit LOL. Beautiful shot up top too. I slowly and steadily embrace tech, compared to my former tech allergic self. I am just too busy traveling, writing and being offline completely to get much into the smart/iPhone side of things.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Ryan
