Your current iPhone may already be water-resistant, but that doesn't mean it's easy to use when rain is dripping down the screen. Apple may have come up with a solution for that with its rumored upcoming iPhone 11 series.
This is according to information provided by Max Weinbach of XDA Developers in the tweet you can see below. The tweet is over two weeks old now, but is now beginning to gain attention in the aftermath of the Samsung Galaxy S10 launch and MWC 2019.
Weinbach's source claims the next iPhone range will be able to understand where your fingers are tapping even when the display is entirely submerged in water.
We can't vouch for the source of this information - Weinbach hasn't revealed it - but Apple has a patent for the technology and is experimenting with devices in the prototype stage, according to the tweet.
Whether this will be ready for the next-gen iPhone 11 family, which we're expecting to debut in September this year, remains to be seen.
The next iPhones are probably going to have displays that work underwater. It’s in the prototype stage right now but seems likely. They have a patent for it and are finally doing it.February 15, 2019
