An Apple patent application released by the US Patent and Trademark Office has strategies to protect electrical connections with a “self healing elastomer”, Apple Insider reported.
Those materials possess the power to fix themselves. Connections could be seen by the initiation such as the headphone jack covered by the protective material, which will enable the headphone plug then reseal later to mitigate against damage and to penetrate the jack.
A number of rumours had indicated that Apple was working on dustrproof and waterproof prototype iPhone 7, Apple Insider said.
Next year, the iPhone 7 will be tipped for launch.
