For many users of a smartphone it is important to know whether the device is waterproof and protected against dust.
This is also true for the iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xs Max. For this reason, we want to clarify for you the question whether the two models are protected against the penetration of water and dust and if so, according to which IP classification.
IP protection class iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs
Max Both smartphones have the IEC standard 60529 and are IP68 classified. In plain language, this means that the smartphones can stay in the water for up to 30 minutes and at a depth of up to 2 metres.
However, this only applies to fresh water and not to salt water! The classification has also been carried out under static conditions.
This means, for example, that jumps into the pool are not recommended, as the water pressure on the housing of the iPhone Xs rises quickly and water could penetrate.
You now know whether the iPhone Xs or the iPhone Xs Max are waterproof and which IP classification has been assigned.
