iOS 10 will warn for moisture in the Lightning connector (6s, 6s Plus, SE)

Apple has apparently devised a plan to deliver us from such shocking scenarios (sorry, couldn't help it), by issuing warnings when there is moisture detected in your iPhone's Lightning connector. The feature has been introduced in the latest betas of iOS 10 and apparently only works with the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus and SE.
Last month, the USPTO granted Apple a patent for a liquid resistant “acoustic device”, which suggested that the company might be on track to add some ruggedness to its offerings in the future. The patent documents outlined waterproofing schemes not only for speakers, but for other “apertures in the device's housing” as well. Since we don't have the hardware yet to keep those pesky liquids out of our iPhones, we are going to assume that this software solution is the first small step in that direction.

Because other companies like samsung and sony have already waterproofed their smartphone, and not start charging in the first place when it's wet. It's not like this isn't a neat feature, in fact it should be mandatory. But to say Apple is the leading innovator over a small feature like this is an obvious bias. Though if your comment is sarcasm , then I'll show myself out the 3rd floor window

dont know whats wrong with people like you. Atleast samsung had the courtesy to accept their mistake (which came off a production line) and has offered a replacement to anyone whose S7 active gets water damaged, unlike Apple, which just blamed their customers for "holding" their phones wrong (remember AntennaGate?)

I signed up for iOS 10 beta and the 1st one is buggy as hell (to the point it just hangs on the home screen then starts acting funny then it's okay again.. wtf) I almost threw my phone out the window! Just installed the 2nd one, still lags but hopefully the Home Screen Hang of Death is gone.. btw no AR for Pokemon Go when you're on iOS 10 beta 1 and 2, only on the 3rd it's working..... bummer!
