It became known about the patent filed by Apple. Americans are planning to achieve full waterproof their future devices.
Judging by the materials, the Lighting and USB Type-C connectors will receive protection from water ingress. In the latest devices of the company, such as XS Max and XS, the index of protection against dust and water is equal to IP68. That is, these smartphones absolutely nothing will be from a half-hour immersion in a half meter water.
The vacuum pumps, which will be located in the new iPhone models, must guarantee the tightness of smartphones. It is not yet known when this technology will be implemented and whether it will be implemented at all, but waterproof smartphones will certainly be in demand.
