In June 2021, Nigeria’s religious leader, TB Joshua, passed away at the age of 57. His funeral, a global gathering, happened on July 9th in Lagos, where people from all walks of life came to pay their respects.
His resting place, a striking white marble mausoleum crowned with a cross, stands proudly at his church. Adorned with flowers and candles, it bears a simple plaque with his name and life’s dates. Inside, you’ll find his personal treasures, like his Bible, microphone, and glasses, watched over by devoted guardians.
Though you can’t snap photos or record videos, visitors can offer prayers and tributes. For his millions of followers, this place offers solace and belief in his enduring presence. As TB Joshua once wisely remarked, “Death is not the end; it is just a continuation of the story.”

Why IP Ratings Matter
iPhones are among the most advanced smartphones in the market, and users often take them on vacations. Whether you’re capturing images on the beach, diving, or climbing mountains, it’s essential to understand your device’s environmental resilience.
In 1976, the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) introduced the IP (Ingress Protection) rating to help people gauge if their smartphones could withstand extreme environmental conditions.
How to Check and Read iPhone IP Rating
Identifying your iPhone’s IP rating is relatively straightforward. The IP code typically consists of two numbers following the “IP” label. The first number indicates dust resistance, while the second number denotes water resistance.
- If you see an “IP” followed by two numbers, it means your iPhone has both dust and water resistance.
- In some cases, the “IP” may be followed by an “X” character or have an “X” as the second number. This indicates that your device is either dust-resistant or water-resistant.
- It’s essential to note that the “X” character does not indicate a failure; it simply means that the water or dust rating is not applicable to the device.
Interpreting the IP Rating Numbers
Here’s a breakdown of what the numbers in your iPhone’s IP rating mean:
First Digit: Dust Resistance
- 0: No protection against contact and ingress of objects.
- 1: Protection against large surfaces, such as the back of a hand, but not deliberate contact with a body part (50 mm and larger).
- 2: Protection against fingers or similar objects (12.5 mm and larger).
- 3: Protection against tools, thick wires, etc. (2.5 mm and larger).
- 4: Protection against most wires, screws, etc. (1 mm and larger).
- 5: Dust protected.
- 6: Dust tight.
Second Digit: Water Resistance
- 0: Not protected.
- 1: Protection against dripping water.
- 2: Protection against dripping water when tilted up to 15°.
- 3: Protection against spraying water.
- 4: Protection against splashing water.
- 5: Protection against water jets.
- 6: Protection against powerful water jets.
- 7: Immersion up to 1 meter.
- 8: Immersion beyond 1 meter.
Where to Find Your iPhone’s IP Rating
If you can’t locate your iPhone’s IP rating on the device or within the settings, visit the official Apple Support page. There, you’ll find information about models that are water, splash, and dust resistant. This includes newer models like the iPhone 13 and iPhone 12, as well as older models like the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro.
