iPhone X features an IP67 rating but who cares when "Water and other liquid damage to iPhone or iPod isn't covered by warranty".

Why isn't it covered by warranty?

Inside the iPhone there's a liquids indicator that changes colour when liquid reaches the indicator.

'iPhone and most iPod devices are equipped with Liquid Contact Indicators (LCIs) that you can see from the outside.

An LCI will activate when it contacts water or a liquid containing water. The indicator's color is normally white or silver, but when it contacts water or a liquid containing water, it will turn fully red. An LCI won't activate because of humidity and temperature changes that are within the product's environmental requirements.'

It's a pity the warranty doesn't include water damage, especially when their phones claim a level of water resistance. Now I feel disbelief in the product.
