The iPhone 8 is set to be completely waterproof with the help of an IP68 rating.
The iPhone 7 seris were fully dust proof, they came with an IP67 rating. However, they were only splash resistant, unable to be fully immersed in water.
The IP68 certification will protect the new iPhone 8 in up to one and a half meters of water for half an hour.
Apple is all about innovation and superiority, and this is definitely going to further catapult them in front of their competitors.
Samsung appears to be following the trend, and they plan on giving the Galaxy S8 the same certification. The Galaxy S7 was given the IP68 rating last year.
Apple is planning on adding a number of different specs to the iPhone 8, these include true wireless changing smarts, a curved screen and a 3D dual lens camera.
