iOS 10 Will Help Protect Your Phone from Water Damage
As we gear up for the official release of iOS 10 this fall, we keep getting more and more excited for the cool new features that will soon be on all of our phones. We already know that iMessage is going to be awesome, your phone will be able to help you find your parked car and emoji are going to get animated. But there’s another hidden feature that could be a major game-changer for accident-prone phone owners.
Testers just discovered one awesome new trick: a water sensor inside the phone’s lightning port. If the phone senses that there’s water inside, an error message will pop up. “To protect your iPhone, disconnect this Lightning accessory and allow the connector to dry,” the message reads. The feature only appears to work for the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus and SE.
Some people predict that this is the first step into a water-resistant phone—an iPhone 7 rumor that people can’t seem to stop talking about. Our inner klutzes are rejoicing and putting away that bag of rice we keep in case of emergency.
