1,000-foot Drop

According to WHO TV in Iowa, where the incident happened, the iPhone was found after the plane landed via Find My iPhone. It took two tries to work, but Ms. Naverhaus found it amidst tall grass in a residential area.

An iPhone survived a 1,000-foot drop from an airplane, pictured here.

The second passenger, Donna Johnson, said:

I literally went into shock.ย I asked this is this for real? Is that the same phone? This is a miracle phone, you can’t drop a phone 1000 feet and have it still work!

There is no indication if the iPhone had a case or not.

I am guessing that it was in a case. Of course there are other factors such as what was on the ground such as thick grass and how the phone was orientated when it landed.

Too bad that it wasn’t recording video as it fell.

From another article it landed on grass, which helped. Saw another one this morning. Someone dropped their iPhone from a carnival ride. It fell a couple hundred feet. The camera was recording video, but it’s just a blur because it was spinning so fast.
