Just a few days ago, Apple slammed the defendant again. . . This time it was not a lawsuit due to copyright or antitrust issues, but because of the waterproof function of the iPhone, it got a class action lawsuit in the District Court of New York, USA. The entire complaint is 13 pages long, and it mainly states that Apple’s waterproof certification: “iPhone 7, iPhone 11 Pro, Pro Max and iPhone 12 can last for 30 minutes in 1, 4, or 6 meters of water, respectively. 'The team that filed the lawsuit believes that Apple's waterproof certification is completely unreliable! Because these waterproof certifications are based on testing in pure water in the laboratory. This is very different from our daily life that we will touch tap water, swimming pool water, and sea water containing chlorine and salt. In other words, when consumers go to swim or go to the beach to play, if they do not take any protective measures for their mobile phones, there is a chance that problems will occur. Can a waterproof mobile phone be guaranteed for water ingress? Some friends may think that there is a problem with the mobile phone, so it is not enough to take the warranty. However! These waterproof phones have been flooded, and there is a high probability that they cannot be guaranteed! This is because Apple's method of detecting whether these phones have been exposed to water is very simple and rude. It is directly inside the Sim card slot of the mobile phone with a water test sticker. This water immersion detection sticker is a bit similar to the PH test paper, as long as it touches the liquid, it will turn red, and the official maintenance staff can refuse the warranty after seeing it! The litigation team believes that not to mention that the phone is completely immersed in water, even if the drink is accidentally overturned or the phone is drenched in the rain. The result of this lawsuit has not yet come out, but in November last year, Italy fined Apple 10 million euros (equivalent to more than RMB 70 million) for 'waterproof mobile phones without warranty'. There is a high probability that Apple will lose the case, but it is just a matter of paying more and paying less. In other words, domestic users can do the same! Friends don’t hurry up to form a team! This, of course, is for compensation and to urge Apple to make progress! Don't engage in these fancy selling points, unless you really have the courage to do the water warranty! When you use your mobile phone, your friends should pay more attention to the fact that the waterproof certification of the iPhone is not reliable. Don't forget the warranty by accident. For those who need to bring their mobile phones to the environment with water frequently, it is recommended to buy a waterproof bag of excellent quality. What should I do if the phone gets water? However, even if you are very careful, your mobile phone will inevitably experience water ingress. So, here's a little flash to give everyone a popular science on what to do when the phone is flooded. Shut down immediately. Regardless of whether the screen is on or the phone is in condition, turn it off immediately! Cutting off the power can reduce the possibility of motherboard burnout and hardware failure. It is also not advisable to try to boot. Dry in a well-ventilated place. There may be a small partner who will use a hair dryer to dry it, but this will only cause the water vapor in the phone to spread to other areas, and it will burn the phone. Therefore, the correct operation is to place the phone in a ventilated and dry place, let the excess water on the surface dry naturally, and absorb the water stains on the surface of the phone to avoid damage to the components caused by moisture. Soak up the moisture inside. Experienced people can directly disassemble the machine and open the screen to absorb the water stains inside. But not everyone can disassemble the machine, so it is best to seek the help of professional maintenance personnel at the first time, you can take it for repair, and leave professional matters to professional people to handle it.
