If you have the new iPhone X then you’re going to want to make sure that it’s well protected from the elements. So, if you’re looking for a waterproof case for your iPhone X then we have you completely covered. Though there are hundreds of cases available on the market, not all of them are of high-quality and standards that you want in a waterproof case. So, we selected the best waterproof cases which are durable, well-designed and varying in budgets both big and small.
What does ‘waterproof’ mean?
Though you think ‘waterproof’ means completely impenetrable to water, that’s not the case. This is because the iPhone X offers an IPX7 feature which is the water resistance rating. The iPhone X is water resistant meaning that it can withstand being immersed in water up to 3.3 feet ( 1 meter) for up to 30 minutes. So, if it drops into the toilet, a puddle or has rain falling onto it, you’ll know that your phone will be able to withstand those water elements. If your device is given an IPx8 rating, this means it’s rated the highest level of water protection in the IP code which is a scale from 1 to 9. WIth a rating of IPx8, this means the producer guaranteed that the product is suitable for continuous immersion in water.
If you see that the manufacturer has rated the case as being waterproof, this means that it carries an IPx8 rating and has been tested to survive in harsh elements for up to an hour or more. With a water-resistant iPhone and a waterproof case, you’ll be well protected from the elements.
