iPhones have a degree of water resistance, but are not entirely 100% waterproof.

There is no speaker on the left side of the bottom edge only a microphone.


It may sound like it since the right speaker is very close to it, but no sound is supposed to come out of there as its just a microphone.

If you read Apple's description of "IP67" they claim that it's water/dust resistant to a certain standard, but that they are "not permanent conditions". They indicate that iPhones are subject to normal wear that may decrease the water resistance over time.
