Apple launched its much-awaited iPhone 7 on Wednesday and the company announced that the phone is IP67 certified and water resistant. However, the company has specified that ‘liquid damage’ to iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will not be covered under warranty.

It is important to note here that Apple is not the first company to make such a statement as Sony, which has even come out with phones that are IP68 rated, has not only provided guidelines about what the rating means but also says that its warranty doesn’t cover the damage caused by abuse or improper use of the device. This clarification by the company doesn’t mean that the warranty won’t cover the damage caused by accidental splash of water but does mean that you should probably not keep pushing the phone’s limits when it comes to water resistance.
