Beginning with the ever popular iPhone version, Divevolk has innovated a version of underwater housing to have true touchscreen ability on the entire real estate of your phone screen! Not buttons that work on Bluetoothconnection or restrictive presses on the volume buttons. The gel-filled layeris the piece of spongy-feeling layer between your phone’s screen and you. Anyscreen protector would have to be removed before inserting into the housing onits specially moulded tray designed for specific models of iPhone 6/7/8/Plus/X/XS/XS Ma/XR/11/ Pro/Max/12/12 Pro/12 mini . This is to facilitate the sensor to sense your finger contact more effectively on the phone as the ambient pressure is already exerting a force on the entire gel layer, the phone needs to sense your ‘finger’ to register it as a contact.
Function wise, this is the only housingwhere you can use the entire touchscreen underwater. No buttons! Waterproofto 80 meters/262 feet, you can use all of your apps, camera for photos andchange any settings just as you would on land. If there is an emergency, youcan still use text and phone features at the surface. If your smartphone has awireless charge option, that function will still be maintained whilst in thehousing, so no need to take it out of the case to charge.
There are a few apps and features available,too. For example, you can broadcast audio underwater. Imagine being aninstructor and needing to ask students to look back at you. Create a pre-setrecording then play it for them to hear underwater. And imagine being able tolisten to music underwater.
