If you’re looking for a picture to illustrate the difference between water-resistant (like the Apple Watch) and waterproof (like no Apple product yet), this one will do perfectly!
The traumatizing photo was posted on Twitter by jilted lover @foolishnessfly2, who decided to get revenge against an ex who had cheated on her by dumping his entire Apple collection in a bathtub full of water.
Needless to say, this is one breakup he’s going to remember. Hope he’s got AppleCare+!
As far as I can make out, the collection includes one iMac, an iPad, two iPhones and a pair of MacBooks. Given that there’s almost certainly permanent damage to the internal components, that’s at least several thousand dollars worth of high-tech goodies gone to waste.
The photo has clearly struck a chord on social media, too. Since first being posted, it’s been retweeted more than 15,000 times.
Apple recently published a patent application aimed at making its iOS products waterproof, using a method for sealing buttons by using interlocking flanges. Maybe someone in Cupertino has suffered a similar trauma in the past!
