IPhone Survives Skydiving 1,000 Feet Without a Parachute

Of course, readers should note that the two cases may very well be freak incidents in which nothing happened to the iPhone units, and, should not try dropping their iPhone to test their durability. First was the case of the iPhone 7 found to be working after two days submerged under 30 feet of water; now, we've heard of iPhones surviving falls from a plane and the world's tallest swing ride.

Sarvinder Naberhaus, from Iowa, US, took a leisure flight on a vintage American aeroplane.

Miraculously, the woman was able to locate the device on the side of the road in tall grass using Apple's Find My iPhone feature.

"I had my phone in my hand and I moved it just a little bit outside [the windshield] and then whoosh, the wind just took it and it was just gone after I was holding it, and I looked down and there were cornfields below me", Newsweek quoted Naberhaus as saying in WHO-TV. Amazingly, once the ride was over, she was able to use Find My iPhone to locate her phone - and it was in one piece.

Despite warnings by management not to bring loose items on the ride, Cansel Yildirim whipped out her iPhone 7 Plus for some amateur photography atop the StarFlyer, a massive swing at Magical Midway Thrill Park in Orlando, Florida. "I thought I heard ringing, I'm trying to walk as quickly as I can towards the ringing sound", she told WHOTV.

"I literally went into shock". "'I asked this is this for real?"

In the video, the phone appears to be flipping as it makes its way down. "Is that the same phone?'" and I said 'this is a miracle phone, you can't drop a phone 1,000 feet and have it still work!'"

In what has to be one of the most impressive cases of a smartphone surviving the forces of nature, an Apple iPhone 7 has been found on the ocean floor completely functional and with most of its battery retained.
