We will probably get criticized by Apple fans by saying that your next smartphone should be waterproof or water resistant to a certain point. Today’s smartphones are almost like lifelines for people. We simply cannot live without them. Most smartphones store information for us to lead our day to day lives in a productive manner, not to mention, we cannot remember much these days and that applies to a plethora of phone numbers, email address and website addresses.

In knowing that a few drops of water or a plunge into the toilet could wipe out nearly a lifetime of stored data on a smartphone, they should all be waterproof. There are several new smartphones on the market that advertise as being waterproof or just water resistant. The difference in the two being that waterproof means that the entire smartphone may be submerged into water and still survive without any water entering into the circuits causing your latest Facebook update or Tweet to evaporate into nonexistence. Water resistant on the other hand, simply means that you can have your smartphone in the rain or your shower without any worries but in the unfortunate event that you drop it into the pool, you are officially out of luck.

The iPhone is more of a proverbial argument as to getting them replaced when they get wet. Apple purposely placed moisture sensors inside of the iPhone to detect if your ‘damage’ was caused by water or immersing the iPhone into water. Sounds like a scam doesn’t it? If Apple does decide to make the new upcoming iPhone 6 waterproof, then there will no longer be any worries will it?
