There’s one rumor that standout in the list of pre-iPhone 7 launch buzz – the possibility that it is waterproof.
Speculations have mentioned that Android’s foray into waterproofing might motivate the change for the bigger iPhone 7 Plus
Now, a patent successfully granted to Apple this week shows a method for color-balancing photos taken underwater. Since Apple isn’t (yet) in the business of cameras (and loves to market the iPhone as a camera equivalent), the patent could definitely be for an iPhone. The patent mention not just the iPhone, but the iPad as well.

For the time being, the new iOS 10 also alerts users about moisture or liquid inside Lightning port. Moisture may form inside charging ports due to sweaty pant pockets, air conditioning or after the smartphone getting wet on a rainy day.
Most of the times, users are able to understand the problem only after the damage has been done.
Apple iOS 10 will alert users and give them some time to disconnect the Lightning accessory to avoid any damage. It also automatically advises users to use the accessory when both the port and connector are completely dry. According to a report by Engadget, the feature will be available on newer iPhones like the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus and iPhone SE.
