Dear Samsung, the next Apple iPhone will be water resistant
The Samsung Galaxy S6 has been unveiled. The smartphone came with a lot of awesomeness, surprises and of course, disappointments. Why is the Samsung flagship being discussed in an Apple article? It’s because Apple and Samsung are the two greatest phone makers the planet could boost of right now and being biggest rivals, whatever makes Apple smile usually gets Samsung sad, and vice versa.
So, the Galaxy S6 debuted without water and dust resistance — which is actually one of the reasons why some customers preferred the Galaxy S5 (which had IP67-certified resistance) to the iPhones — and here we are, Apple is busy developing the feature Samsung had thrown out.
A patent filing published by the USPTO during the weekend reveals that Apple is working on something which will keep iPhones, iPads and even Macbooks safe from water and moisture. Instead of disallowing water into the device like Samsung’s patents work, the tech will focus on safeguarding the delicate components inside the device, thereby making the device resistant to damage by moisture.
It’s not yet clear if or whether will use the technology on the iPhone 6s which is due for release later this year. For now, we;’ll keep our fingers crossed and wait to see how things pan out.
