You’re considering buying the iPhone X and you’re wondering if it’s waterproof. Fortunately, you can let out a big sigh of relief! In this article, I’ll answer the question: is the iPhone X waterproof?
Is The iPhone X Waterproof?
Yes, the iPhone X is waterproof up to 1 meter or approximately 3 feet. The iPhone X was rated IP67, meaning that it is completely dust-resistant and water-resistant when submerged at a depth of 1 meter or less.

Is Water Damage Protected By AppleCare?
Your iPhone warranty does not cover liquid damage, even though the iPhone X is waterproof. Warranties for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the first water-resistant iPhones, also do not cover liquid damage.
iPhone X Waterproof Rating
Like most other devices, iPhones are graded on their dust and water resistance using an IP Code, also know as an Ingress Protection Rating or an International Protection Rating. Devices rated on this scale are assigned a score of 0-6 for dust resistance and 0-8 for water resistance.
Currently, the only smartphones with an IP68, the best overall rating a device can receive, are the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S8. However, Apple is seeking to catch up with Samsung and release an IP68 rated iPhone. Just recently, Apple filed a patent in Taiwan for what appears to be an iPhone with a IP68 rating.
