    Does anyone else cringe when they see an iPhone or iPad, unprotected, photoed on a concrete surface… like in this iMore article:

    Cringing at iPhones on CONCRETE?!-mint-mobile-ipad-hero.jpeg

    Sometime, the device is even FACE DOWN *gasp!*:

    Cringing at iPhones on CONCRETE?!-iphone-stack-june-2016-angle.jpg

    I honestly have a such a visceral response to these photos that it's hard to even focus on the accompanying article!

    iMore, please, make it stop! Oh… and keep up the otherwise excellent work!

    I don’t see on any of those photos that there is NO protection though.

    By "no protection," I mean like no case or anything in between the rough concrete and phone. It's just aluminum (or glass) directly against the concrete. Eek!

    That’s just it.
    Maybe there is a small protective film between concrete and bottom device.

    Yeah… that seems like a bit of a leap of faith to me.

    Most photos like do use a cloth at least between the concrete and device. It’s just hidden from view for the photo.

    That's all well and good… but if I can't see it, I don't know that it's there. And thus, the cringe still happens every time!

    As long as it's not my iPhone on the concrete, I'm ok with it.

    That’s actually a noble thing to do.
    There is real gold and other valuable sources in it.
    You should try it sometime.

    It didn't hold up under the "run over by a truck" test?

    Apple is DOOMED!

    You really need to work on how you tell stuff.
    At first instance I was gonna send you my condolences, now I’m sending my best wishes for your cousin.
