Finally! No Submarine Required!
It appears there’s been a patent filed by the folks at Apple that has the future iPhone Seven able to eject water through the use of sound. I’ve never been terribly clumsy with my smart phones to be honest. I know that there’s a lot of people who have a tendency for accidents. I suppose this would be a nice development for those of us who would be using their iPhone in the bathroom – how can I say it? – Near a very unfortunate water source? You gotta hand it to Apple! They certainly think of every possible contingency.
What will they think of next?
The next generation iPhone could have some some unexpected high tech features. According to TechTimes , Apple has filed for a patent to give the rumored iPhone 7 waterproof features. The patent is titled “LIQUID EXPULSION FROM AN ORIFICE,” which means that liquid, including water will get ejected from the microphone holes and speakers. This would be an upgrade from the rubber gaskets used in the iPhone 6 to prevent water from coming in through the holes. The patent was filed with the United States Trademark and Patent office, TechTimes reported.
Rumored specs for the iPhone 7 includes an A10 system on a chip (SoC) that will sit at the heart of the smartphone and a super thin frame at 6mm thick. The iPhone 7 might also have a 2K display, an Apple wireless charging puck, front-facing speakers, and an 8MP selfie camera in the front.
