2019 iPhones to be just as water resistant as the iPhone XR and iPhone XS/XS Max
This confirmation isn’t exactly surprising considering the 2018 iPhone lineup effectively has the highest level of water and dust resistance possible according to the IP standard. However, Apple could improve upon its current devices by increasing the resistance to cover higher levels of pressure or depth. According to Kuo, though, this will not be the case, so consumers should expect the same IP68 rating at a maximum depth of 2 meters for 30 minutes.
Considering the 2019 iPhone series is almost an entire year away, it’s a bit too early to begin talking about their features, although an all-screen design is more or less guaranteed. Fortunately, it isn’t too early to talk about Apple’s iPhone XR.
The smartphone was announced last month but, due to production issues related to the LCD panel, was delayed until late October. Fortunately, late October is soon, with pre-orders set to start this Friday, October 19, and shipments expected to follow the following Friday, October 26.
