apple-logo3Is it a bit too early to start talking about the iPhone 7? After all the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have barely gone on sale for a week! That being said we suppose some of you guys who are skipping the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus for the iPhone 7 are probably eager to learn what could be in store for Apple’s 2016 flagship.

To that end, a new rumor from China has emerged which suggests that Apple could be interested in waterproofing its next-gen smartphone. The rumors also claim that Apple will not use the 7000 series aluminum but an even stronger material that will somehow be able to prevent water from seeping inside the device.

All of this seems highly suspect because if anything, Apple has designed its products with aesthetics in mind. Compromising on its looks for more functional features like better drop protection and waterproofing has never really been Apple’s practice, so we’re not sure why they would start with the iPhone 7.

In fact if anything, last we heard Apple was planning on making the iPhone 7 its thinnest iPhone yet, so clearly aesthetics still plays a huge role in the planning and designing process. Either way do take it with a grain of salt for now, but would a waterproof iPhone be something you might be interested in?
