The internet is awash with speculation that Apple's next mobile handset, thought to be called the iPhone 7, will be WATERPROOF.

If true it could herald an end to the misery that results from dropping your iPhone down the toilet, plonking it into your pint glass, or forgetting to take it out of your pocket before diving into the swimming pool.

It would also bring the mobile phone handset in line with competitors like the Samsung Galaxy S7 - which can be fully submerged underwater for 30 minutes at a time.
