Thinking of doing some all-wet outdoors activity soon? Rocking your new iPhone7 is probably on the agenda as well… It’s a great phone, I know. You may also need to think about the depth of water that you might be getting into; with this in mind, the appropriate phone casing should suffice.
“But the iPhone7 is water resistant”
Ah, yes it is, but then you need to understand the concept of water resistance. The iphone7 is rated IP67; the IP means “ingress protection” a measuring unit for its level of resistance. The 6 means dustproof while the 7 ultimately means resistance to water penetration under immersion in about a meter of water for 30 minutes. This is, of course, theoretical, it could be more or less, but do you really want to take that chance?
Depending on the amount of water activity you would be engaging in, you might need to consider a solid iPhone7 phone case that would ensure that your phone can go all the way without taking in a few gulps. Very few phone cases match the exorbitant demands and ratings of the iPhone7. In no particular order, here are some high-end iPhone 7 cases:
- The Pelican Marine Casing
The beauty of the pelican is in its strength; it protects your phone from very nasty drops and also scores an IP68 rating, which means a tolerance of 6.6 feet depth of water for an hour. The camera works fantastically well in HD with a sound volume.
- OTBBA Waterproof Case
A great screen guard should play the role of protection to the fullest. This is exactly what this brand brings to the table.
