This new Apple tech could stop your iPhone or Apple Watch from getting water damage


Water is a major hazard for high-end portable tech like smartphones and smartwatches, but water resistance has lessened the threat, and future iPhones and Apple Watches could be even better protected.

That’s because Apple has patented a ‘stand-alone water detector,’ which uses a membrane to detect if water has entered a device. Currently, Apple uses gel-filled sensors to help detect and defend against water ingress, but this new system would apparently be more accurate, and less prone to errors caused by pressure.
