Teardown Update! Just like we found in the iPhone 6s, the logic board's connectors are protected by tiny silicone seals.

These appear to be the waterproof silicon seals that Apple patented back in March.

The most common point of failure on a phone dropped in water? The logic board connectors. Coincidence? I think not.
