Does AppleCare Plus cover water damage to the IPhone 8+ or IPhone X?
These models are water resistant to a few feet under water and supposedly splashproof. Does the 2X Accidental Damage coverage of AppleCare Plus include replacement (for a small fee) of the IPhone if its water damaged? I could find no exclusion in the AppleCare Plus contract....but its all legal jargon so I am asking the forum....and would like an Apple Moderator to answer so we know the official policy.

Does apple warranty cover water damage?
I certainly believe we all suffer damage, one way or another. How could we not,except in a world of perfect parents, siblings, neighbours, companions? And then there is the question on which so much depends, of how we react to the damage: whether we admit it or repress it,and how this affects our dealings with others.Some admit the damage, and try to mitigate it;some spend their lives trying to help others who are damaged; and there are those whose main concern is to avoid further damage to themselves, at whatever cost. And those are the ones who are ruthless, and the ones to be careful of.
AppleCare+ for Mac now includes coverage of 2 incidents of accidental damage
Every Mac comes with one year of hardware repair coverage through its limited warranty and up to 90 days of complimentary support. AppleCare+ for Mac extends your coverage to three years from the original purchase date of your Mac and adds up to two incidents of accidental damage coverage, each subject to a service fee of $99 for screen damage or external enclosure damage, or $299 for other damage, plus applicable tax.1 In addition, you’ll get 24/7 priority access to Apple experts by chat or phone.
Water Damage Not Covered For iPhone X
As usual, although Apple advertises the 2017 iPhone flagships as being water resistant, a potential water damage isn’t covered by the standard 1-year AppleCare warranty that’s included for free when you purchase the iPhone X. Liquid damage is included with AppleCare+ though, but this requires you to spend an additional $199 on top of the device’s 4-figure price tag. Then, if water gets into your iPhone X you have to pay the Other Damage fee of $99.
Fact: Only two incidents are covered by the AppleCare+ insurance. Both Screen Replacement and Other Damage incidents are counted.
AppleCare+: Everything you need to know about Apple’s extended warranty program
For example, I broke my iPhone 7 screen, and Apple was able to do a same-day screen replacement at the Apple store. I don’t have AppleCare+, so Apple charged me the “full” price for the screen repair, which was $129. But if I’d paid $129 for AppleCare+ ahead of time, the repair would cost me $29. That means I actually paid less for the screen repair out of warranty. But if I broke the same iPhone again within the two years, the second $29 screen repair would put me way ahead.

NOTE: If you are out of warranty and purchased an Apple product with a credit card, discuss the warranty issue with the credit card company which you purchased the computer with. They are the only ones who can at this point cover your product after it goes out of warranty with the manufacturer (Apple).
How to fix your water-damaged iPhone, iPad, AirPods, or Mac
Rather than go through all them, the IP ratings we need to concern ourselves with in the case of Apple products are IP67 and IPX7, the water resistance rating given to the iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, and X, and the Apple Watch "Series 0" and Series 1, respectively. The Apple Watch Series 2 and 3 are good to 50 meters deep, but were not given an official IP rating. IP67 and IPX7 mean that the device is totally protected against dust that would harm the internals, and it can survive after being submerged in up to 3 feet of water for 30 minutes.

Certain damage is ineligible for out-of-warranty service, including catastrophic damage, such as the device separating into multiple pieces, and inoperability caused by unauthorized modifications. However, an iPad that has failed due to contact with liquid may be eligible for out-of-warranty service. See http://support.apple.com/kb/index?page=servicefaq&geo=United_States&product=ipad
