Mophie’s newest battery case makes your iPhone waterproof

“Known for its lack of waterproofing, you wouldn’t want to take your iPhone with you to the shower or outside when it rains,” Williams Pelegrin reports for Digital Trends. “Mophie wants to change that with its Juice Pack H2Pro battery case for the iPhone 6 Plus and 6S Plus [also for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s].”

  2. So, in the not-so-distant future surveillance state, if a criminal, terrorist, or member of the Resistance found himself cornered by coppers at the wharf, fearing his network of associates would be compromised despite strong encryption, he’d not be able to get rid of the evidence by tossing his iPhone in the drink—because it’s waterproof.

    Hypothetical, but the US government likes to argue that way, so…
