    This is the iPhone 7 that is shipping this week. Do you mean the iPhone 8 (or whatever they will call it) next year?

    Dude, how long are your showers that you need to bring your phone in to use it? I'd rather dedicate the time using the phone to hurrying up that shower.

    You can leave your iPhone at hands reach in the shower behind a curtain. If you get a call or text, you can reach out, answer the phone call with your wet hands and ears outside of the water stream.

    I would NOT recommend using it UNDER the water stream/shower though.

    Even if it is fully waterproof, it will still be hard to use in a shower since water interferes with capacitance and stops the touch screen from correctly detecting your hands.

    Splash proof means just that, it is an old term that used to be applied to cheap watches, I ruined a lot of these while sailing, years ago. Unless the item says it is guaranteed against 100m immersion don't trust it. The tests for immersion depth suitability are static tests, swimming and showering are dynamic activities.

    I just wanna be able to use it in my shower. Not pool or anything
    The phone is water-resistant, not waterproof. Keeping that in mind, no, you definitely should not use it in the shower.
