Water Damage Isn’t Covered Under The iPhone 7 Warranty

water resistance iphone

The iPhone 7 launch touted its IP67 water resistance rating as a feature. Might not be such a great feature though, as Apple will not cover water damage under the warranty. So if the phone is supposed to be waterproof and gets damaged because it isn’t as waterproof as it should be you’re out of luck?

I’m not sure what my lawyer friends would make of this, but to me that sounds like something that could be challenged under the Sale of Goods act on the basis that a water resistant phone should, oh I don’t know… maybe, resist water?
