"Dropping device in water up to 3 feet" is a lot different than submerging it for 15 minutes. I'm not recommending people go diving with their Apple Watches but you have to admit that this test outperformed the IPX7 rating. No one is saying Apple Watch is IPX8 but we know that Apple is typically conservative on all specifications so they set the bar low and the IPX7 "full water splashdown" means nothing to real world users.
It's only a measure of time. If water damage doesn't rear its ugly head after a few days, it's safe to assume the unit is fine. That being said, I think we all have already made up our minds on this one way or the other. Will you really change your opinion if they discover water damage in a few days vs. no water damage after this test? You're still not going to be in a pool or shower with your watch on wrist. I'm still going to take my watch off in the tub or before...
Pretty sure we're all talking about this thread with the youtube video. You know, the video with very little science going on.
I think it's more about the actual conditions. Different water temperatures, salt water, movement while under water, etc. all affect the amount of overall water resistance. We know it's not fully waterproof but now we know that most people can jump in a pool for minute and not have to freak out the second their Apple Watch touches water. After that fact, there is very little science going on here but I'm fine with that.
Their official explanation is on the website: Strengthened, lightweightIon-X glass.To keep the Sport collection models as light as possible, we used an aluminosilicate glass that’s especially resistant to scratches and impact. It’s fortified at the molecular level through ion exchange, with smaller ions being replaced by larger ones to create a surface layer far tougher than ordinary glass. Or are you really looking for a different answer? We all understand IPX7 just fine...
The author was making a generalization about porn in theory. There is nothing wrong with the idea. As always the problems arise in the implementation and the abuse when it's put into practice by people. Should we throw out all porn because some of it exploits women or some of it leads to aggressive behavior? This is no different than the their deal with HBO or the App Store. No one has a problem with Apple wanting to police the App Store so that we all get quality content...
You may be right about Siri but then again there is nothing technically stopping Siri's voice on the watch either. If there is , it's probably more about data connection bandwidth and storage than battery life. They have not unlocked the Siri video yet in the tutorials on the website so I guess we will know the answer when they do that or tomorrow when the try-on appointments begin. I don't understand why any airline would care what the QR code is on. You could literally...
Can't say I agree with your sentiments. After all, would any of us care to simply read a diary from her as she prepares for a marathon? Of course not. And likewise, would Apple expect her to write something about the Apple Watch without coaching her or even writing the script for her. This is what we want and what Apple needs. And as far as yor complaints, I'm not sure you're right about Siri. She doesn't talk when you first prompt her like most iOS devices but what...
It's a non-issue to anyone that doesn't care about bar graphs and tests which are most iOS users and about 3 Android users. In the end, user experience is all that matters but in the meantime, this is ammunition for the endless spec war.
This study and story are completely contingent on the market or area where 3000 people where surveyed. Some areas do not have Apple Pay at all even though their stores advertise it. Some areas Apple Pay is everywhere but you would never know unless you try. The first time I ever tried it, I tried it at a Petco which is has been an Apple Pay partner from day 1. The same charge ran through 3 times but wasn't processed. The finally told me that the hardware at the store was...
