Apple’s newest patent for a “Protective mechanism for an electronic device” was awarded from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office today. Apple U.S. Patent No. 8,903, 519 aims to address the all too common user error of dropping your phone.
Does this mean we can drop iPhone as much as we want on concrete and still it won't break?
No, it's aboutminimalizing the damage, not stopping it all together. This should be a common ground between all tech companies as it is a really common occurrence for customers.
Thanks for the info on this.
Hah I wonder if it will make an actual difference.
Well if I'm spending $600 to $800 on a damn phone I'm buying the best case made period oh, Wait I already do that.
Had a iPhone 4, 2 years caseless use. Had a iPhone 5, 2 years caseless use. Now i have my 2 old phones are still in great condition in my drawer, no dents just some wear & tear. Apple designs beautiful phones, not gonna hide it! My iphone 6, will probably fare just as well. I guess it also depends if you have a desk-job, or frequently go skating with it in your pocket. Just don't be careless.
Then they'll break past the $995.00 USD. Mission accomplished?
