Hi! My name is Cédric Bozzi, I make websites and iOS apps, and this is my blog about technology (mostly a Twitter archive, really).

“Evidence that the immersion sensors are fallible”

They let an iPhone for an hour, in its original box, at a temperature of -11° C then let it rest for 24 hours. It has never been in contact with water yet, after they repeated the process three times, they could see the sensors had turned pink, particularly the one inside the headphone jack.

I’m still curious about the legality of those sensors. To be precise, I’m curious about how Apple hasn’t been sued yet for refusing to honor the warranty on a device that shows no visible trace of abuse except for the manufacturer’s entirely arbitrary tattletales.
