Worried about dropping your iPhone? Shouldn’t be worried anymore. The smartphone was placed in a case from Urban Armor Gear and dropped from an altitude of 100,000 feet above ground.
The phone was sent to the space with the help of a balloon and flight ring along with a backup phone with GPS and active tracking. Two GoPro cameras and 1 GPS locator was attached.
The iPhone made it through winds at a speed of 70-mph and temperatures of below -79 degrees Fahrenheit (-56 degrees Celsius) equipped with a parachute. The flight lasted over three hours and withstood rotation of 150RPM.
The iPhone landed in a perfect working condition though the flight rig broke apart.
