    Have you dropped your iPhone, so far, with no damage?

    Not to jinx anyone, but I think mine has hit the ground at least a dozen times from as high as my shoulders and as low as two feet and landed on front, back and corners.

    Not my iPhone (although yea I have dropped it) but with my old iPad Air, I used to drop it ALL the time, no damage. I had this habit of using it on my couch at night, and I'm kinda old (over 50 anyways) and I would start to nod off and then the BOOM would wake me up and the iPad hit the floor, it didn't go far, was always ok, until that 1 time. I was like, well I can't type what I said on a family forum. I was able to get it fixed, 3rd party repair and it was fine for about another year until the screen started getting wonky. I was STILL able to sell the device for about 100 dollars though, FULL disclosure of condition. Have an iPad Pro 9.7 now, and I baby it AND it has a smart cover!

    I drop mine constantly...but bought a PopSocket that basically eliminates that issue for old small hands here. I have a PopSocket waiting for my S8/S8+ tomorrow as well.

    I dropped my 6s Plus in a restaurant on a hard tile floor face down. There was no damage, thanks to my Otterbox Commuter. I had no screen protector.

    Yes, I have on a few occasions, but it's been a while. Still, dropping my iPhone is a rarity for me. Thankfully, there's no damage on it whatsoever.

    I wouldn't like to guess, it's almost a weekly occurrence. I always have it in a case now which helps with the anxiety of waiting to hear the thud on the ground .

    Dropped mine one time without a case on. Since 3 weeks I'm sporting my iPhone 7 Plus 256GB Gold without a case. I had it in my front pocket of my jacket and forgot to zip it shut. As I bended it slipped out of it and I had 2 little scratches.
    I used a soft nail file to smooth it out. I'm still using it without a case and haven't dropped it since.

    I keep putting my iPhone 6 in my bank back pocket and then going to the bathroom and have bounced it off the rim of the seat onto the floor 5 times now. Watch I just jinxed it.

    3x so far

    No damage with Otterbox Commuter Case and PureGear tempered glass protector

    Still contemplating whether to get AppleCare+ since I'm within my 60 day purchase window

    I rarely drop my phones. And if I do, they're usually in an Otterbox Defender case so the damage to the phone itself is very minimal.

    I go caseless with AppleCare.

    It's freedom.

    I've dropped my iPhone at home on my laminate floors loads of times without any damage. I've not dropped it outside.

    I don't drop my phones very often and if I do it's not very far, usually on carpet and they have a case on them. I am very careful with all of my phones. I don't baby them necessarily, but I am very aware of where it is at all times so I don't accidentally drop it or knock it to the ground.

    The visual of this made me giggle.

    Glad your new iPad is dressed appropriately now.

    I don't have a 7 but last summer I dropped my 6S+ on the cement on my driveway. I have the phone in an Apple leather case. The phone landed on the bottom left corner and then fell face down. Picked up the phone and it was absolutely perfect with no damage. I have the same leather case on my 6+ and 6S.

    My 7+ fell off my desk and fell face first on the hard tile floor at work. No damage even though it was in a cheapy $10 case from Amazon. Whew! I had forgotten I was wearing headphones and rolled my chair back and down it went. I have AirPods now so that shouldn't be a problem anymore.

    I've dropped my 7 Plus once or twice. Luckily it's been on carpet because I don't use a case.
