We’ve already seen the phone survive immersion in water, soda and coffee, and even dropped into 35 feet of water. This latest test has pro surfer Kai Lenny take the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus out into the waves …
He starts with the iPhone 6 and 6s, which unsurprisingly don’t survive for long – both dead within five minutes.
The iPhone 7, however, is still working perfectly after a full 30 minutes of surfing. The 7 Plus doesn’t do quite so well, with the audio badly affected after the same 30-minute ride.
Don’t try this at home, though: Apple officially rates the waterproofing at 1m immersion in still water for 30 minutes – and even then, water damage isn’t actually covered by the warranty.
But hey, the tests are fun to watch.
