What Happens to an iPhone in a Car Accident?
Rikki Wright / 3 years ago
At some point, we can all probably admit picking up our phones while behind the wheel of the car, even if it’s just to get it out of your pocket because the vibration is annoying. Even worse than that, a small percentage of drivers go further and actually use the phone while driving. We all know the legal and most safety consequences of doing this, but what about the airbags in the event of a crash?
The people over at EverythingApplePro has gone and tested this for us in a very Mythbusters style by pitting multiple iPhone 6S phones against airbags in different scenarios.
For those that do not have a stable internet connection, the testing pretty much shows multiple iPhones getting destroyed.
I can safely say that it is scary what happened to the device. I know that in most cases there are never two airbags directed at each other, but in some newer cars there are airbags very close to each other to protect front and side impacts. Imagine if they caught your hand while holding the device?
This channel previously tested whether an iPhone would be a viable alternative to conventional brake pads, I can tell you that they’re not.
