LifeProof your iPhone

My friend described the time when his brand new iPhone slipped from his shirt pocket into the bath as he leant over to shampoo his son’s hair as one of those horrifying slow-motion moments. Down, down, down it sank to the bottom of the bath. Gone, gone, gone my friend thought. And he was right – the phone never recovered. He should have ‘life-proofed’ it.

If there was ever an iPhone case made for parents, it’s LifeProof. There’s all sorts of details on the LifeProof website about the ‘seven levels of protection and the four proofs’ the case provides but parents just need to know this: waterproof. Yes, take your iPhone swimming – the LifeProof case features waterproof vents on the microphone and speakers and waterproof seals on the case and ports.

Babyology tried out a LifeProof case on a recent trip to Malaysia and we loved it. It’s also worth noting that LifeProof cases for the iPad will be available soon.

If you still need more convincing check out the video clip below (note: if you really love your phone, you might find it mildly distressing!).

She now fills her time with writing, completing a degree in genetics and taxiing her children around Melbourne to their various sporting commitments (not necessarily in that order).
