iPhones fall from awesome heights and survive (again)

From time to time, we talk here about Macs or iTrecos that fall from outrageously great heights and survive. Not because we want to convince anyone that the devices are indestructible (not least because it's definitely not my late dead iPod touch after a drop of less than a meter that says it), but because we project our fears and hopes on those brave death-defying gadgets. outperformed her. Or something like this.

Recently, two stories of this kind have surfaced. The first one, told by the site whoTV, comes from the city of Ames, Iowa, where Sarvinder Naberhaus I was taking a sightseeing tour on a twin-engine plane last Tuesday (10/7); In the midst of the flight, the iPhone in his hand that was being used to take pictures was snapped in the wind and plummeted over 300 meters.

Naberhaus, who would be returning from the next day, ignored the pilot's warnings that the phone was hopelessly lost: he turned on Search My iPhone, got his car, and drove to the approximate location on the map. He tried to hit some houses, but no one had seen anything like it. It was only when she tried to call her own number that she heard the sound of the miracle: there was her iPhone, absolutely intact in a field of grass (I suspect the grass played an important role in this story, incidentally) and warning of a meeting. 4 pm It all ended well and she was meeting.

The second story, brought by the site Click OrlandoIt's even cooler not only from the impressive video you'll see below, but also from the fact that in this case the poor iPhone fell straight to the hard concrete floor and survived the whole story.

The turk Cansel Yildirim She was enjoying her vacation with her husband in Orlando, Florida, and was enjoying a few moments of nausea and excitement at StarFlyer, the world's tallest flying carousel, last Wednesday. At 140 meters, Yildirim decided to pull his iPhone 7 Plus to shoot the night view of the city, when you guess! the pet escaped from his hands and landed on the floor.

Not surprisingly, the girl, who expected to find her iPhone in a million pieces, would find the entire device with only a small risk when she got off the toy. And not only that: the filming was still running, having recorded the whole incident!

Awesome, isn't it?
