The latest iPhone from Apple is now IP67 certified. This makes it dust and water resistant. To be precise, the phone can withstand upto 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. This means, it can be used in the rain or on the beach without hassles. The iPhone 7 Plus is also the best waterproof mobile to buy at the moment. It is extremely fast, thanks to the Apple 10 SoC and Apple’s vertically integrated iOS software. The phone has one of the best cameras amongst phones today. However, with prices starting well over Rs. 65,000. It is indeed tough to afford.
