FOUND: An iPhone That Fell 9,300 Feet And Works Just Fine

by Sarah Laskow / 31 Jul 2015

Ben Wilson, of Texas, owns a company that sells propane storage tanks and gas plant equipment. Also, he owns an iPhone. And on the way back from Houston, in a private plane, that phone sailed out of the plane.

The small Beechcraft Bonanza plane was flying 9,300 feet above the ground. But when the pressure changed, the door popped open just a bit, the Wichita Falls Times Record News reports. Of course, 9,300 feet is pretty far for an Apple product to fall, considering that a drop of a few feet from your clumsy hands to the ground can already ruin a perfectly good iPhone screen.

But Wilson's phone still worked well enough that he was able to locate it with the Find my Phone app.
