    It's a cool feature, but I'm much more interested in better features and hardware. I have my case for protection.

    I say yes as well. My husband needed this a few weeks ago. Had his phone in his swim trunks pocket and forgot about it when he got in the pool.

    ​Of course, but aside from that, a water-resistant device is a plus...

    This almost happened to me on several occasions.

    I once fell in the pool with an old Nokia. Lesson: don't work around the pool with your phone in your pocket.

    Anyway, yes I would be interested in a water resistant phone.

    Good Luck

    Wow... I just thought the same thing when I saw that ad for the S4 Active. Bring on the waterproof iPhone.

    I'd be interested if the trade offs weren't much. Screen quality, camera, etc. Oh and AppleCare (not plus) would have to cover water dmg. You can't sell a waterproof phone and not stand behind it.

    It's not meant to be a "cool" feature it's a feature I would use often in the rain and other situations. This is a big deal.

    So I got a Lifeproof Nuud case today! I'm lovin' it! I can finally be waterproof and have my retina display as well. Words can't express the joy I feel! Waterproof is a big deal for me (having dropped two phones in the toilet) so I've been all over lifeproof since I've had iPhones. Always was unhappy with that cheesy plastic screen cover. But today, today is a new day! I'm having my cake and I'm eating it! Woohoo!!!! Yayyyy meeee!!!

    Am I the only who thinks this is a modern miracle?

    If Apple could pull it off with keeping the iconic design we all know and love for the iPhone I would say yes! But I don't think that could happen I could only seeing this being done an additional device being manufactured and I really don't want to see Apple going the Samsung route and making a bunch of different variants of iPhone. I say use a case that offers water protection.

    This is pretty much how I feel as well. If there is a way to do it without compromising the design, then I'm all in. But I don't know if that would be the case. I love the look and feel of the 5, especially when it's not in a case.

    I said YES also. That would be a great additional feature to have indeed. Sure, there's the LifeProof case as well as the Atlas by Incipio...just to name a couple. But along with using those cases, something gets compromised-the sound quality. I don't know about the Atlas, but last year I bought a white LifeProof for my 4S & at first I loved it - I thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread lol. But I have a hearing problem in one of my ears & having the case on made the sound muffled where I was missing some notifications I've never used it since, & it was out of the return period to get a refund...

    So, if a water resistant feature were to be introduced, I'd def be happy about that !

    If you are going to do it, do it right. Slapping a water resistant case on an iPhone will still not allow you to submerge the phone to take underwater pictures. The S4 Active and others like it are designed so that you can take close up shots of Charlie the Tuna. I think it would be awesome if Apple would design a phone from scratch that was meant to be used underwater. Sadly, with Apple's current one phone a year strategy, I don't see that happening.

    I definitely would like an iPhone "Active" (similar to what Samsung has done with the S4). In my career, I find myself in situations where I have to be in a downpour or at least traveling through it by foot and it would be nice to have no worries about water damage (not that i do now really, but having that security blanket would be nice).

    I don't understand how you drop them in the toilet. Seriously.

    Both times the phone was left in the bathroom on the shelf above the toilet. My phones are predominantly on silent/vibrate mode. I'm sure you can figure what happened next.

    Water resistant is good if it had it I'd love it. However before getting to that point what I would love to see Apple do is have an iPhone as beautiful as the iPhone 5 but with a finish that is rugged. So I don't have to buy a case I just slap a screen protector and use it without fear or scratching, gouging, etc. Then worry about the water resistant business I want to use my iPhone without a case which I know many people already do.

    My first post on this website was an epic story of a toilet drop (and rice bag rescue)...before it happened to me, I would have completely agreed with you...How the hell does one drop their phone in the toilet? That is, until it happened to me as I was talking to my dad, I can't remember exactly what it was now, I was reaching for something and I just lost my grip on it and into the water it went. It never happened before then, and it has never happened since...but I can't deny, It was just a simple accident (that scared the crap out of me because I had not had the damn thing very long).

    I can't wait to get one. I am holding out a little hoping that Verizon carries them since I get a discount.

    U gone love it! Got a break on mine. Went to Best Buy to exchange my dre beats due to of all things water damage. Turns out they had no more on the shelf so I got the LG Tones and the case. Only paid $20 difference. Yesterday was a good day!
