How about better water damage PROTECTION for these expensive devices rather than detection.

How many people cringed at the photo above with the iPhone soaked in water?
Not that I'm in love with Apple, but that it's expensive electronics.

The way it's beading up looks funny. Like carnuba wax for a car does.

I agree i think it should have a way better water protection not just for apple phones but for all high end phones.

Now you have to watch the weather channel to check the humidity before leaving your house so your apple warranty doesn't get voided!

Call me crazy... but what is wrong with taking care of your device.... I mean you paid lots of money.. why not take care of it... if you are close to water... hold on to it.. if you cant... well get those cheapAndroid phones that carriers give away...

Because no one spoils their phones on purpose, accidents happen, unfortunately, iPhones can't even handle accidental drops... And don't you think it's sad those "cheapAndroid phones that carriers give away" are more hardy than a iPhone which cost more than that and is supposedly better?

Those "cheap" Android phones that you get for free on-contract will still cost you $300-$400 to replace if you don't have insurance. So better protection on smartphones all around should be the focus. But who are we kidding? These greedy companies want you to break your phones and buy replacements for them. Oh... you have insurance? Sure we'll replace your 3 month old phone with a refurb pos and charge you $150 deductable. They're not loosing a dime.
