I certainly agree regarding the iPhone 7 Audio IC issue, Apple has consistently denied any design flaw on their part.
However, regarding you testing the water resistance, I disagree. Take a look at the specs for the iPhone XS Max (https://www.apple.com/ca/iphone-xs/specs...):
Splash-, Water- and Dust-Resistant3
Rated IP68 (maximum depth of 2 metres up to 30 minutes) under IEC standard 60529
Notice the little “3” in superscript. Here is what the fine print says (emphasis mine):
- iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are splash-, water- and dust-resistant, and were tested under controlled laboratory conditions with a rating of IP68 under IEC standard 60529 (maximum depth of 2 metres up to 30 minutes). ''Splash, water and dust resistance are not permanent conditions and resistance might decrease as a result of normal wear. ''Do not attempt to charge a wet iPhone; refer to the user guide for cleaning and drying instructions. Liquid damage not covered under warranty.
Apple is doing it’s darnedest to wash it‘s hands of any issues. For one, only ‘controlled-laboratory conditions’ (hand picked devices, perfect conditions…), secondly, they’re already distancing themselves from how long water resistance will last and lastly, they won’t even cover water damage under warranty. It’s pretty obvious that Apple does not have a high level of faith in the water resistance for any individual device. Anyone who willingly tries to test if a phone is actually water resistant should be prepared for a complete loss of functionality.
That doesn’t mean you don’t have grounds for a lawsuit but you probably could have saved yourself a lot of trouble. An iPhone remains a “computer in your pocket”, it is immensely complex and it’s quite frankly, when you look at the level of technology, it’s borderline miraculous that we even have this level of technology accessible to us in the first place. There are lots of reasons to be unhappy with Apple…but they are pushing the bleeding edge of technology on every new iPhone iteration. I fix heavily damaged devices every day and at times I am shocked at what people willingly subject their phones and tablet to.
Anyway, this isn’t really about you in particular, hopefully this will also serve as a context for others when they wonder if their phone can really survive exposure to water. The answer is “probably not”.
Cette réponse est-elle utile ?
Same thing happened to my 256gb IPhone XS completely fried because something spilled on in inside my backpack. I don’t have any options and kinda confused and !#^&@@ on how it can happen. I think my iPhone was a defect and was possibly improperly sealed but now it looks like i can’t do anything

My bf had the same problem with his phone too. His XS Max slid into the sink while he was washing his hands and he took it out of the water ASAP but it died instantly and I tried the go-to-methods but everything has failed so far so I’m scouring the internet for other possible solutions. It isn’t as advertised at all so I totally get your frustration plus fixing the phone with Apple would cost $800 at least when the phone itself already cost $1000++
Also, even any bit of dampness makes his current iPhone X go wonky - the keyboard will not function properly and neither will face recognition and the phone will be unresponsive so yea to anyone reading, it really isn’t water resistant unless you count the moisture in the air

Just had the same issue, and now it hasn’t stop restarting every 50 secs. It’s a pain in the ass that they sell a water resistant product and in the end it doesn’t resists a splash.
I had the same issue with my Xs Max. It slipped into a cup of water and now it’s completely malfunctioning. First, it’s only on silent mood and refused to get on ringer. Secondly, it started going on and off on it’s own. I then decided to update the software, right after downloading the software and decided to install; as soon as I installed the update, the phone went off and is now refusing to come on. Apple really needed to fix this mess before putting it on the market. This is criminal in nature.
I understand man, I posted a similar situation, my XS 256gb was with some wet clothes for probs less than 30s because a water bottle had spilled inside my backpack while camping. The phone quit after 10 mins and the cameras fogged up. Apple says they can’t do anything and it’s because hey are hiding behind their no liquid damage warranty. My 6 took on more water in its life than my 3 month old iPhone
