Leak: The iPhone 7 won’t have IP68 rating but be more waterproof than the iPhone 6S
If you have been nursing the plans of having an iP68 rating on the upcoming iPhone 7 device so that you would be able to shower and use your phone or take some underwater shots in the swimming pool, a new post on Weibo which contains packed details about the iPhone 7 seems to suggest that you should start thinking otherwise.
From the information page, it is revealed that a capacitive home button would be used on the iPhone 7, making it better secure for water situations than the iPhone 6s was but still, not making it in any way near as safe as the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are which can stay in as deep as 5 feet down water for 30 minutes.
The capacitive home button is a confirmation of one of the rumors floated last week and with the electromagnetic technology, you won’t feel anything is missing as it would just still feel as though you are handling a physical button.
A new colour variant, the Space Black, was also confirmed on this leak alongside the possibility of a larger rear camera.
