Apple’s waterproofing on the iPhone 7 is looking worthy of the price to upgrade alone.
I can’t count how many iPhones I’ve destroyed over the last nine years during water accidents. But after watching the iPhone 7 take a surfing lesson at Australia’s beautiful Bondi Beach, it looks like Apple totally undersold just how water-resistant the new smartphone truly is.
Watch the iPhone 7 catch waves:
In addition to being the iPhone 7’s watery proving ground, the sea-green waters of Bondi Beach were the inspiration behind the Bondi Blue color that the iMac G3 originally came in.

If that spectacular Aussie surfing test doesn’t impress you, this guy dunked the iPhone 7 in water, soda and coffee for five minutes.
Spoiler alert: Both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus came back working just fine. No leaks or screen problems.
