iOS 10 beta 3 has a cool new feature addition which warns the user when the Lightning port is wet.

iOS 10 Will Warn Users If The Lightning Port Is Wet

It's fairly uncertain at this point in time whether or not the next iPhone will gain waterproofing credentials. But Apple has already tossed in a feature in iOS 10 which will warn users whenever any sort of liquid is detected in the Lightning port.

Here's what the warning looks like:

If you're asking us, this addition is an absolute lifesaver. Why? Because it will definitely help users protect their expensive accessories from water damage. That too on an end which is responsible for pairing with your iPhone - the Lightning port.

Noticed how we used the word 'iPhone' in the last sentence? That is because the warning only appears on newer smartphones such as the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone SE. Older iPhone models aren't supported it seems.

Whether or not this is a sign that the next iPhone will be waterproof is anyone's guess. But it's too early to say anything at this point. Still, Apple adding this feature to the iPhone using software is well enough on its own. At least in this moment in time. There is a chance the company has something else planned which they're not telling us about.

Be sure to let us know in the comments section below what you think about this feature addition in iOS 10. Is it a sign that we'll be seeing a waterproof iPhone in the future?
