Part 1: What is IP67 Water and Dust Resistant

As for the question of what is IP67 water and dust resistant, here I would like to explain it to you. In fact, IP ratings includes 4 characters, and they are I, P, and two digital numbers.

1) I and P together stand for Ingress Protection, which means the degree of preventing stuff getting inside it.

2) The 3rd digit shows the degree it can protect against tiny solids, such as dust, sand and so on, whose maximum rating is 6. This can range from no protection through tiny screws, a little dust or all dust.

3) The 4th digit means the resistance rating on liquid or water, whose max rating is 8.

That is to say, when you see IP68, this means it provides the highest IP rating for both dust and water resistance according to the IP-rating certification.

What is IP67 Water and Dust Resistant

As for IP67 certified dust and water resistant, now can know its meaning. iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus are both IP 67 devices and they have the same dust resistance as the IP68-rated Galaxy S7 and Xperia Z5 devices. However, IP67 waterproof and dustproof rating can only survive being up to 1 metre deep in water normally for half an hour, including splashing from a shower or an accidental dunking. If the water is much deeper than 1 metre, the water will be pushed through almost all internal components of the device.
