    Aquapac Mini Waterproof Case I've been reading great reviews about the Aquapac Waterproof Mini iPhone case. This case was rated IP68 which simply means that your iPhone inside the case will stay buoyant when you drop it on water that is it will float and will not sink into the bottom. Hence, you can retrieve it easily. Another good thing about the Aquapac Waterproof Mini Case is that it will protect your iPhone from salt air due to prolonged submersion into the water, hence preventing the iPhone from corroding. Other features of this waterproof case include - make and take calls right through the case material, GPS signal is unaffected, LENZFLEX window on the back allowing you to take pictures, submersible up to 15 feet, and UV-stabilized TPU material.
