Is iPhone 12 waterproof?
If you don’t know, the protection level of iPhone 12 is IP68. But what does this mean? Is iPhone 12 waterproof?

Therefore, the iPhone 12 can even be immersed in water up to 6 meters deep for up to 30 minutes.
Apple’s iPhone 12 is waterproof, so it’s okay if you accidentally drop it into a pool or splash it in liquid. But how deep can you really capture this phone? Let’s take a look at the actual test of iPhone 12 waterproof function.
IPhone 12 waterproof function measured
According to CNET’s test video on iPhone 12’s waterproof performance, the results are quite good. They tested it by leaving the iPhone 12 screen on the stand facing the camera and immersing it in a cold water pool. After being immersed in water at 52 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes, the iPhone 12 still works normally, but compared to the sound before the test, the sound of the hands-free phone is “a bit muffled.” Most importantly, functions such as the touch screen, camera, and buttons are still valid.
The family continued the more difficult second test, and the results showed that the iPhone 12 was immersed in 19.8 meters of water for 40 minutes. Surprisingly, everything is normal. The screen is responsive, the volume and power buttons are very useful, and the two cameras are also very useful. The speakers are still muffled, but still audible. However, after letting it dry for 72 hours, the iPhone 12’s rear and front cameras became blurred.
This test shows that iPhone 12 can withstand very deep water and obviously meets IP68 requirements. However, like all electronic devices, it has a limit on the amount of water absorbed. Do not deliberately immerse the phone in water.
