The iPhone 8 Plus already provides water resistance to a depth of one meter for up to 30 minutes, but given its price, that might not be enough. For added protection, you should consider purchasing a waterproof case for your smartphone. Here are some of our favorites that get the job done.

It's always a good idea to invest in a waterproof case for your iPhone because you never know when it will come in handy. If I had to pick one case for my next underwater adventure, it would definitely be the Love Beidi (opens in new tab) case. The manufacturer lists an IP68 rating but notes that the case will likely exceed that, which means you are technically able to take your case deeper than two meters. There's also the added security of having a 3-month warranty. Love Beidi offers several color options, a solid waterproof rating, and great design for a price that won't hurt your wallet.

However, if money is no object when it comes to your tech accessories, you should consider splurging on the LifeProof FRĒ Series (opens in new tab) case for its similar color offerings and design but better overall protection. Finally, if you'd rather not stick to the typical case design, then there's always the pouch option from F-color (opens in new tab).
