Probably already some of you you don’t understand life without mobile, but for someone like me who is already over forty, it hasn’t always felt familiar. This means that I have lived through all the eras: going from not having a mobile on a daily basis to starting to integrate it. Until the arrival of smartphones, the first mobile phones were not always with us. “for emergencies only”, we said at the beginning. But also to send SMS, the “killer feature” of the time.
Before smartphones, it was difficult to see a phone on the beach: now it’s rare not to carry it… but you have to take precautions
We weren’t used to taking those early mobiles to the beach. Some were heavy, easily damaged and were of no real use to us during our stay. Only maybe if we were expecting a big call or thinking of using it later. That’s when the iPhone arrived – in my case, my first smartphone
I’m interested in the last question: Obviously phones with SMS weren’t going to be very useful, but with the arrival of the iPhone, surfing the Internet (to the real Internet, not to the “baby internet” of the WAP), playing games, video conferencing, or taking the obliged photo of our legs on the sand (“BEACH MOOD!”) makes our phone accompany us even in a place that classic has been so unfavorable to technology like the one these products carry.
Beaches and renovations
i swear i saw of all on the beaches. Whether it’s keeping the phone wrapped next to the sandwich, putting it in a case where the ice and fridge are, or burying it in a capsule under the towel. Anyway, I I want to continue enjoying my iPhone on the beachIn fact, on my Instagram I uploaded a story from the sea – with pictures I took from inside the water. Some almost had their heads blown off with it.
Today, the iPhone 13 Pro Max has splash, water, and dust resistance with IP68 rating and can be submerged up to 6 meters deep for up to 30 minutes. We have seen extreme cases where it lasts even a little longer. The sea is a more delicate environment because of the sand and salt water, but my response and the use I give it – if it gets wet – is always the same: immediately when leaving the sea, wash it with fresh water
Of course, take them well protected and taking care of them inside the cases or covers specially designed for the beach, if possible waterproof. Eduardo Archanco puts his head in his hands when I talk to him about it this week – normal – and we also take the opportunity to talk about Gurmanesfera, the HomePod that refuses to die and the number of novelties that will reach us after the summer. Also iOS 16, MacBook Pro M2 review, ways to get organized with iPhone and why programming is an amazing exercise for everyone.
