A great built-in feature of the iPhone 11 Pro Max is that it’s water-resistant up to 13 feet (4 meters) for 30 minutes. Take the water-resistance even deeper by protecting your iPhone in a waterproof case. Consider any one of these waterproof iPhone 11 Pro Max cases to more fully protect your phone from damage.
What to Consider in a Waterproof iPhone Case
Waterproof phone cases are a great choice to fully protect your phone from the elements. Consider these features when making a purchase:
- Depth: Consider how deep into water your phone could go, as these cases all have varying depth protections.
- Elements: Many of these cases are built to protect from water, but also snow, dust, and dirt.
- Additional protection: Sometimes your phone can slip out of your grasp and fall to the floor — so consider a phone case that is waterproof but also has protection from accidental drops.
- Versatility: There are some waterproof cases that you’ll only want to use when you’re by water, but some are great for everyday use as well as around water, so you won’t have to switch out cases as often.
