Are refurbished iPhones still guaranteed to be water-resistant?Caitriona GogartyA phone’s resistance to water, splashes and dust is not a permanent feature and tends to decrease with normal wear. Being a reconditioned used product, unfortunately we cannot guarantee that the IP67 or IP68 certification remains valid. For this reason, any damage from liquids cannot be covered by our warranty. To prevent damage from liquids, we recommend you avoid the following: Swimming, bathing or going to the sauna with your iPhone. Exposing the iPhone to pressurised water or at high speed, for example while taking a shower, water skiing, wakeboarding, surfing, jet skis and so on. Intentionally immersing the iPhone in water. Using the iPhone in temperatures that are not within the recommended range or in extremely humid conditions. Disassembling the iPhone or removing screws from the device. Please note that this list is also only an example and not exhaustive.
