Answer a few quick questions to evaluate your visit.

Using your Style Cover Window in wet and dusty conditions

Your Style Cover Window is waterproof in compliance with the Ingress Protection (IP) ratings IPX5 and IPX8, as explained in the table below.

These specific IP ratings mean that your Style Cover Window is protected against low pressure water stream as well as against the effects of immersion for 30 minutes in fresh (non-saline) water up to 1.5 metres deep.

Even if your Style Cover Window is resistant to water, you should avoid using it unnecessarily in or under water and should avoid exposing it to moist environments with extreme high or low temperatures and high humidity.

Never immerse your Style Cover Window in hot water, non-fresh water (for example, spring water, chlorinated pool water and sea water) or other kinds of water that could damage it. Also, never expose the Style Cover Window to any liquid chemicals, for example, detergent, alcohol and other abrasive liquids such as juice, vinegar and ketchup. After exposure to non-fresh water, rinse your Style Cover Window using fresh water.

If your Style Cover Window gets exposed to water, make sure it is completely dry before using it again. For example, if the Style Cover Window has not completely dried, it may not respond when you tap the window, or functions such as data transfer and calling might be negatively impacted.

Do not attach the Style Cover Window to or remove it from your Xperia™ device using excessive force or a method not described in this User guide.

Use a soft, dry cloth for cleaning all areas of your Style Cover Window. To prevent colour fading, do not wipe the accessory with alcohol, thinner, benzene or any kind of detergent.

Do not expose the Style Cover Window unnecessarily to environments with excessive dust, sand and mud.

If sand, mud or dust gets stuck between the front cover of the Style Cover Window and your Xperia™ device, wipe it off with a soft cloth. Otherwise, there is a risk that your Xperia™ device and the Style Cover Window might incur scratch damage.

There is a possibility of discolouration or colour migration due to friction, sweating and exposure to non-fresh water. Be mindful of this if you are using the Style Cover Window in close proximity to fabrics and other materials.


These instructions for use in wet and dusty conditions apply only to use of the Style Cover Window. Your Xperia™ device may have its own instructions and restrictions on use in wet and dusty conditions. Please ensure you check these too before exposing the device to such conditions.

Your warranty does not cover damage or defects caused by abuse or improper use of your Style Cover Window (including use in environments where the relevant IP rating limitations are exceeded). If you have any further questions about the use of your accessory, refer to our Customer support service for help.

Ingress Protection Rating

Your Style Cover Window has an IP rating in accordance with IEC Standard 60529, which means it has undergone certified tests to measure its resistance levels to both dust and water. The first digit in the two-digit IP rating indicates the level of protection against solid objects, including dust. The second digit indicates how resistant the device is to water.

IP1X. Protected against solid objects > 50 mm in diameter IPX1. Protected against dripping water
IP2X. Protected against solid objects > 12.5 mm in diameter IPX2. Protected against dripping water when tilted up to 15 degrees from normal position
IP3X. Protected against solid objects > 2.5 mm in diameter IPX3. Protected against spraying water
IP4X. Protected against solid objects > 1 mm in diameter IPX4. Protected against splashing water
IP5X. Protected against dust; limited ingress (no harmful deposit) IPX5. Protected against water jet spray for at least 3 minutes
IP6X. Dust tight IPX6. Protected against heavy jet spray for at least 3 minutes
  IPX7. Protected against the effects of immersion in up to 1 metre of water for 30 minutes
  IPX8. Protected against the effects of continued immersion in water depths greater than 1 metre. The exact conditions are specified for each device by the manufacturer.
