Is iPhone 13 Pro, 13 Pro Max, 13 Mini Waterproof, And Water Resistant?
Well, according to Apple’s technical specifications, the iPhone 13 series all come with a water resistance rating of IP68. Top gadget sites explain that you can break this ranking into three parts. “IP” stands for “International Protection Marking,” meaning the ranking is an international standard uses to assess how much a device can protect itself from dust and water.
Furthermore, the “6” in the ranking is the phone’s dust protection rating while the 8″ ranks the phone’s water resistance says to Gadget Hacks. An “8” water resistance rating means that you can go underwater at a depth of at least one meter for up to 30 minutes without your iPhone been damaged. This is the minimum requirement for an 8 rating.
Now according to the iPhone 13 specs on the Apple official website, the new iPhone 13 can be submerged in a maximum depth of two meters for up to 30 minutes, and the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max can be underwater for up to 30 minutes at a maximum depth of four meters.
