|Liquid Damage Not Covered by the Warranty on the iPhone 7|
In several instances, Apple has been late in the party – most features have been found in several Android devices, and that has probably been where the California-based company draws inspiration for what it’s about to do next. Now that it has been established that the new iPhone 7 features water-resistance with an IP67 rating, many would probably test out the waters and see if it can do the trick and survive wetness. But do be careful before you do so, it seems Apple isn’t including liquid damages for its warranty coverage.
Both of the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus feature durability measures to keep the phone protected from the hazards and wear and tear. However, while they are splash, water, and dust resistant, the feature isn’t exactly permanent conditions and its resistance capabilities could decrease even due to the normal day to day usage. Apple warns that users must not charge their iPhones while it is wet, and liquid damage is not covered by the warranty.

It’s important to note that the same can be said for other devices as well. Resistance degradation happens over time due to daily consecutive uses, so it’s best to take the protection as an added layer instead of an assurance that it will keep your devices safe around the lock. On the other hand, the does cover damages caused by splashes or rain, so at least it has that going for it.
