The simple answer is: The IPhone X is not waterproof. Waterproof means that it can withstand water for long periods of time in great depth. However, IPhone X can’t withstand water indefinitely. Its waterproof certification is IP67, which means that you can avoid damaging your phone by liquid spills. Also, it can withstand 1 meter for 30 minutes. If you want to test it, you can, but I highly discourage it because it might damage your phone.
The technical term that should be used with IPhone X is water-resistant. It can resist water, but it is not perfectly waterproof. If you want to fact check, go to Official Apple website.
So, I’ve addressed frequently asked questions below. Reading these will help you to understand how “waterproof” IPhone X really is.

No, regular warranty does not cover water damage. However, if you have Apple Care+, it does cover up to two incidents of accidental damage, which covers water. However, you do need to pay $99 deductible. So, don’t swim with you IPhone if you don’t want to pay $99.
