What is the difference between water resistance IP67 and IP68?



Apple obtained the IP68 certificate of water and dust resistance in its new line of iPhone XS smartphones. But how does it differ with the IP67 certificate?

In the IP valuation, the numbers "6" and "8" of the IP68 really belong to different areas. That is, it is not IP-67 but IP-6-7.

The first number refers to the protection of a product against solid matter. On the other hand, the second number refers to the protection of a product against liquids .


The differences between IP67 and IP68
As for the protection against solid matter, the number "6" indicates that the iPhone in this case is completely protected against dust that could damage its operation and other particles. Regarding the protection "8" of the IP68 certificate, this number implies the highest valuation currently available .

Therefore, the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max are protected from immersion in water with a depth of two meters for a period of 30 minutes.


For its part, the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X had protection to water and dust with IP67 certificate.

However, it is important to note that these certificates do not ensure complete protection against water and dust. It is a simple degree of resistance to water. That is why Apple always indicates in small print that it is not responsible for any damage that may cause water to their devices.

Definitely…
In relation to the latest Apple iPhone models, the difference between IP67 and IP68 certificates lies in how deep a device can be immersed in water in a (relatively) safe way . Both certificates will protect your iPhone in a dive of up to 30 minutes, but the depth is different since other factors such as water pressure come into play.
