Is the iPhone 11 Models waterproof? What is the level of dust and water protection on iPhone 11 Pro Max? What IP rating does the iPhone 11 have for water resistance?

 

Yes all 3 2019 models have been waterproof tested and are rated IP68 under IEC standard 60529. Specifically, Apple has tested each model for splash, dust, and water resistance as follows:

  • iPhone 11: maximum depth of 2 meters up to 30 minutes
  • iPhone 11 Pro: maximum depth of 4 meters up to 30 minutes
  • iPhone 11 Pro Max: maximum depth of 4 meters up to 30 minute

 

Apple does notes that splash, dust and water resistance can decrease over time as a result of normal wear, and iPhones cannot be charged while water is present.

  • They have noted as well that liquid damage is still not covered under warranty.
