Breaking in an iPhone

Americans have spent $5.9 billion on damaged iPhones since 2007 and warranty provider SquareTrade has learned in a survey of 2,000 owners that just over half are broken indoors as compared to outdoor mishaps such as leaving the devices on the roof of your car and driving off.

As for where iPhones are damaged inside the home, about 20 percent of the accidents occur in the kitchen with the living room accounting for 18 percent followed by the bathroom at 16 percent where half the time the phone falls in the toilet.  Speaking of which, water tops the list of liquids that cause iPhones to go on the fritz at 43 percent with soda next at 19 percent and then beer tied with coffee and tea at 12 percent.
