Mississippi and South Carolina - the living hell for iPhones and iPads
posted by Ray S. / Aug 16, 2012, 3:31 AM
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.

So much for all the hypes about apple's Premium built. You drop it and oops. All the money cracked.

Interesting that it's the same 2 states getting both top rankings... I wonder if the data is from lack of care, or more likely to have purchased protection for the devices and thus able to make a claim on them, unlike other places that might have disposable money to purchase a new device at will, or who will just pick up a replacement phone out of pocket instead? TL, DR: Is it wisdom from prevention & protection, or generalized widespread klutziness?
