+ - Waterproofing the Next Gen iPhone->

Hodejo1 (1252120) writes "Why has Apple made it's new lightning connector waterproof? The aswer may be found in the fact that the toilet is a leading killer of mobile devices. Let's face it, who reads newspapers in there anymore. Granted, prematurely ruined iPhones and iPods were good for business for Apple as it spurred replacements. But now that Android devices have taken the market lead over iOS devices those customers with damaged iPods are exploring their options. One way Apple could slow this potential market erosion of user base is to reduce the early fatality rate of existing units. A big way to reduce premature perishibility is to make is next gen iPhones, iPods, and iPads waterproof."
