How could you possibly waterproof phone with all the holes that go to the guts?

Ok, maybe diminish corrosion in humid climates and even possibly seal the joints between steel and glass, but consider the microphone jacks - the speakers /w tiny holes in the mesh and the huge charging / multifunction port.
This would stop up the air needed to transmit vibrations to the microphones.
I'm pretty sure (conjecture) Apple used stainless type steel to minimize corrosion and there is NO WAY that the phone can be waterproofed without turning it into a brick. AND they want 59 hard earned bucks AND send my phone to them (for how long?)
Spoof people. You can buy a real waterproof case for less money - that is actually waterproof.
Their words on their site "Waterproof"
Again IMHO: NoWay

It costs around $60 USD. You cannot apply it yourself, you have to send it to Liquipel and it will take 1 - 2 days.

It looks great. They also say that this protection method might soon be applied to phones during manufacturing for extra protection.
