iPhone Dropped from 9,300 feet Survives, Still Functions

NBC News recently reported that Ben Wilson, the owner of natural-gas equipment company Gas Corporation of America, was flying his single-engine plane from Houston to Wichita Falls, Texas, when his iPhone with a protective case was accidently dropped from 9,300 feet.

Once Wilson landed, he realized his iPhone was missing. A British News source explained that “Wilson and an employee used the Find My iPhone app to narrow the search to near Jacksboro, more than 80km (50 miles) away.” They were able to locate the iPhone underneath a tree. There were a few scratches on the corners, but the phone was still “in perfect working order.”

NBC News reported that “Wilson had encased the iPhone in a protective case with an external battery pack, which was the only piece that snapped off in the fall and couldn’t be found.”
