Using Your iPhone 7 in the Shower Is the Latest Status Symbol

By William Turton on at

In 250 BC, Greek mathematician Archimedes sat down in a public bath and realised that the volume of water displaced equalled the volume of his body. This was the birth of the “eureka!” moment, and the realisation that I could use my iPhone 7 in the shower this weekend was exactly the same.

“This shouldn’t be happening,” I thought. “But it is.” As hot water trickled down the screen of my new phone for the first time, I felt a compulsion to pull it to safety. I did skimp on AppleCare, after all. But when my phone continued to play music and load all of the most recent death threats in my Twitter mentions—just like it does when it is not in the shower—I began to feel more comfortable. Not only that, I felt enlightened.

A real conversation I had

Like a superhero that had finally realised his strength, I suddenly felt superior to all of my peers who don’t have the capability to obsessively respond to emails while also taking a refreshing shower. A quick search of Twitter confirmed what I had suspected: using your iPhone in the shower is the latest status symbol.

Some may say that this feature takes away some of our most precious time alone, the time free from the mental stranglehold that our phones have over us.

But they’re wrong. Use your phone in the shower and feel the power.
