Mississippi and South Carolina - the living hell for iPhones and iPads

Mississippi and South Carolina - the living hell for iPhones and iPads
Now, isn't that a wonderful study! Let's see where iPhones and iPads are most likely to end up cracked, smashed, dropped, hit, spilled over or simply broken in the U.S.!

According to warranty firm SquareTrade's own data, the most dangerous places for iPhones and iPads are Mississippi and South Carolina. Mississippi is proudly taking the lead when it comes to iPhone damage, followed by New Mexico, Rhode Island, North Dakota and South Carolina.

In terms of iPad abuse, though, the rank list goes like this: South Carolina, Mississippi, Nebraska, Washington, D.C. and Alaska - scary places to be if you're an iPad, we tell you!

According to SquareTrade, drops and spills are the most frequent reason for iDevice damage - a sad way to end the life of an otherwise lovely piece of gear. But what precautionary measures can one take (except for purchasing warranty, that is)? Hmm, we aren't sure, but getting a case will surely go a long way towards keeping your device safe.
