We’ve all been there. Accidents happen, a small slip or knock and before you know it your phone is no longer the same. It can be frustrating, but rest assured it’s more common than you think!
Using our experience, we bring you the most common ways to damage your iPhone, iPod or iPad…
1. Dropping it on concrete
Sometimes it can survive this test, but if it just so happens to land in a certain position you could find the glass smashed or cracked. The frame can also take a knocking this way, and you may find dents and scratches.
2. Washing machine
It can happen. You’ve been running or you’ve been to the gym, and you used your iPhone or iPod to listen to music. You come home and without thinking you put your clothes in the washing machine and turn it on. And then you look for your phone, realising that it was last in your pocket. By then it’s too late….
3. Swimming pool
This could be on holiday…and to think, all you wanted was some lovely pool-side pictures!
You might laugh at this one, but it has been known to happen quite frequently! We guess we don’t really need to paint the scenario….
5. In the sink
Balancing your iPhone precariously near the sink can be dangerous should it suddenly slip or have a slight knock….
6. Run over by a car
Amazingly, it is possible for an iPhone, iPod or iPad to survive this, which we find extremely impressive! It has been known for people to forget their briefcase behind a car and then reverse before realising the briefcase was not in the boot like they thought!
7. The kids got to it
All kids love exploring new technology, but sometimes accidents can happen (bring on the dribble and accidental falls!)
8. Damage on the job
Your job might entail regular construction site visits, which might open the possibility that your phone could fall from great heights…
9. The dog ate it
It may sound like an age old excuse, but it is possible for your much-loved pet to accidentally damage your phone out of curiosity!
10. Spill a drink on it
From hot tea to a can of your favourite fizzy drink, this can happen on any desk, anywhere in the world!
