What if we told you that in the future iPhones could let you type in the rain and even underwater? That’s right, the company has filed for a new patent that can give you the power to do all this more. This patent has been filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and if all goes well, you will soon be able to get this feature on the iPhone.
According to a patent filed by Apple, iPhones can support humidity on the screen and automatically adjust to conditions. The changes will be noticeable on the display, control buttons and even the sensors built into the iPhone.

The sensors will be tasked with ensuring that no liquid drop will cause a false touch, which is what happens a lot right now. Filing also indicates that the display will turn into a pressure-sensitive screen that only works when the user applies extra power based on the humidity level seen on the phone.
It’s even more fun when you take your iPhone out in the pool or out in the rain. Apple Camera is patenting the app to allow the app to work in dry, wet and underwater mode.
We all know what happens in dry mode, but with wet and underwater mode, Apple will ensure that the UI is not available for any action and the latter buttons are extra-large, only allowing you to use the camera. And some basic touch responses.

Apple will also make sure the user knows the depth of their iPhone and alerts them when it reaches its water resistance limit.
Apple has gradually adopted different IP ratings for iPhones. But the patent indicates that the company wants to take its durability to another level. That being said, this is just a patent filing, so we’re not sure if Apple will offer it on the iPhone in the near future. For now, the patent keeps us excited, and so on.
