There are a few different ways that you can go about making a waterproof phone case. Perhaps the most popular method is to purchase a pre-made case, which can be found at most electronics stores.

However, if you're feeling adventurous, you can also try making your own case using materials such as cling wrap or a ziplock bag. Whichever route you decide to go, just make sure that your phone is well protected before taking it into the water!

Selecting a Waterproof Phone Case

If you are looking for a waterproof phone case, there are a few things you should take into consideration. First, you need to decide if you want a case that is just water-resistant or one that is completely waterproof. There are advantages and disadvantages to both. If you choose a water-resistant case, it will provide some protection against splashes and light rain.

However, it will not protect your phone if it is submerged in water. On the other hand, a completely waterproof case will protect your phone if it is submerged, but it may be more bulky and difficult to use.

Many cases claim to be waterproof but are only water-resistant, meaning they’ll only protect your phone from a few splashes or brief exposure to water. If you’re looking for a truly waterproof case, make sure it has an IP68 rating. This means it’s been tested to withstand being submerged in water. Another thing to consider is the material of the case. Some cases are made of plastic or silicone, which can be cheaper.

Decide what features are important to you

Are you looking for a way to keep your phone safe from the elements? Whether you're planning to take a dip in the pool or go for a hike in the rain, a waterproof phone case is a must-have accessory. Consider what activities you'll be using your phone case for. If you're looking for something to take to the beach or pool, you'll need a case that can be submerged in water. If you're more likely to use it in the rain or snow, you'll need a case that's water-resistant.

Think about what features are most important to you. Do you need a case that floats? Do you need a case that is completely waterproof or one that is water resistant? What level of protection do you need? Will you be using the case for swimming or just for everyday use? Once you have decided on the features you need, it is time to choose a case. There are many different styles and brands of waterproof phone cases available. Do some research to find the best case for your needs. Be sure to read reviews to get an idea of how well the case performs.

Installing a Waterproof Phone Case

If you are anything like me, you are always on your phone. Whether you are texting, taking pictures, or browsing the web, our phones are always with us. So what do you do when you want to take your phone with you on a water adventure, but you don’t want to risk ruining it? You install a waterproof phone case! Below, I will show you how to install a waterproof phone case, so you can enjoy your time in the water worry-free.

There are a few things you need to know before you install a waterproof case.

1. Read the instructions that come with the case. This may seem like a no-brainer, but it's important to read the instructions that come with the case. Different cases have different installation procedures. Some cases require you to remove the battery before you install the case.

2. Clean your phone. Before you install the case, you'll want to make sure your phone is clean. Any dirt or debris on your phone could cause the case to leak. First, start by lightly sanding the area around the phone case opening. This will help the adhesive adhere better. Second, clean the area with a lint-free cloth. Follow the instructions that come with the case.

3. Make sure the case is properly sealed before using it.

4. Test the case by putting it in a bowl of water or another body of water.

5. Don't forget to remove the case before using your phone's camera or other features that require access to the phone's ports.

Tips for Using Your Waterproof Phone Case

If you have a waterproof phone case, you don't have to worry about your phone getting wet. But there are a few things you should keep in mind to make sure your phone stays dry. Here are some tips for using your waterproof phone case:

1. Make sure the case is properly sealed. Check the seal around the edges of the case to make sure it's tight. Check the case for any cracks or holes. If you see any, seal them with silicone or another type of sealant.

2. Don't put your phone in the case until you're ready to use it. Once your phone is in the case, you won't be able to access any of the buttons or ports.

3. Be careful when you're using your phone. Waterproof cases are designed to protect your phone from accidental splashes and not from submerging it.

4. Test the case before using it. Put your phone in the case and then seal it. Fill a sink or bowl with water and place the case in it. Leave it for a few minutes to see if any water gets in.

5. Be careful when using your phone. Waterproof cases are not indestructible. Avoid dropping or hitting your phone.


A phone is one of the most important items to have when camping, hiking or spending time outdoors. But, even the most expensive phone can be rendered useless if it gets wet. This is why a waterproof phone case is essential for anyone who loves spending time in the great outdoors. There are a variety of waterproof phone cases on the market, but they all essentially work by creating a barrier between your phone and the water. Some cases are made of waterproof materials like neoprene or polyurethane, while others use a waterproof bag or pouch. No matter which type of case you choose, be sure to test it out before taking it on your next adventure.
