Ming-Chi Kuo: 2019 iPhones to Offer Same Water Resistance as iPhone XS Lineup

The 2018 iPhones have been available since September, so we are way overdue for predictions and rumors about the 2019 iPhone lineup, right?

In a research note to investors (via MacRumors), Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the 2019 iPhone lineup will offer the same IP68-rated water resistance as this year’s iPhone XS and iPhone Xs Max models. Both devices are rated for water resistance at a depth of two meters for up to 30 minutes.

Kuo said that “the new iPhone waterproof specifications will remain unchanged next year,” according to a translated version of the report. 

IP68 is effectively the highest rating iPhones can achieve under the IP code standard. IP codes refer to the protect a device offers against dust and liquid. The “6” in the rating indicates the devices are dustproof, and the “8” represents the highest level of water resistance.
