That's pretty amazing, not much of an Apple fan but I've always respected their iPhones & pods and now I have an even greater respect for how durable they are lol.. Not that I'd own one.. More interested in Android.

Good thing it didn't land on one of those workers that would have been a disaster.

giving the right circumcisions any phone can kind of kind of make it like that.

angle and speed of approach, weight,outside material acting as a crumple zone and so on

Piece of crap phones.

Drop em from 1" and you'll kill it.. Drop it from 4' onto carpet and you'll kill it.

Drop it from 15,000 feet and it still works.

Has nothing to do with speed, at 13,500 feet anything would reach terminal velocity before hitting the ground
