Some technology companies like Sony and Samsung offer partially waterproof smartphones, to the delight of their customers. We can cite for example theXperia Z3 and the Galaxy S5. Unfortunately theIphone 6 does not offer this possibility. A new rumor would however suggest that Apple is looking into this very gimmicky aspect, but much sought after.Waterproof iPhone patent - Apple: a patent for a waterproof iPhoneAs the Apple does not like to copy its competitors, there is a risk of welcoming a whole new technology promoting sealing. Indeed, instead of modifying the shells of its iPhone, Apple intends to protect certain sensitive internal components with a hydrophobic coating. It is therefore important to clarify that this is not a protection against water per se, but rather against humidity.

Several patents have been abandoned by the American brand before, but the chances that it will materialize are very great. On the one hand because many users await the release of a waterproof iPhone, and on the other hand because Apple must imperatively innovate and equalize the competition.
