Following the announcement that it will debut a new music streaming service this summer, a new report has surfaced, claiming that Apple is working on waterproofing its devices, after its competitors debuted waterproof mobiles to the market. Samsung have introduced the water-resistant Galaxy S5, whilst Sony debuted its fully waterproof Xperia. 

According the sources, Apple filed a recent patent application which points towards the tech giant waterproofing its devices. The patent, filed by Cupertino last March, features a thin hydrophobic coating to certain internal components within the devices. This method would allow Apple to waterproof its devices without compromising the shape or size of the outer iPhone 6 or iPad Air, for example.
