Iphone 6S Plus Survived In The Wilderness One Year After Falling From The Sky

The Nokia 3310’s robustness is legendary, but it seems it has an unlikely new contender when it comes to durability: the iPhone 6s Plus.

The Nokia 3310 has become a legend in the smartphone world because of its durability. But now, a new opponent is challenging this legend’s reputation: iPhone 6S Plus.

Last year, this iPhone has on a one-in-a-life-time adventure with its owner-photographer Haukur Snorrason on an aerial photography trip on the Skafta River in South Iceland. Perhaps, Snorrason had faith in the camera quality of the phone, he decided to use it to film the glacier’s flood.

Unfortunately, a gust of wind swept away the phone. Snorrason’s 6S feel from the height of 60meters on a rocky terrain which is being overflown by a massive river.

In the video below, you can see how the phone fell from the sky and spin around before landed on the ground with the screen facing down.

Haukur didn’t give up his phone that easily, especially after using it to shoot the flood. He contacted a local farmer to ask if he could help him find the phone after the flood was gone since he couldn’t stay. But there was no luck finding it at that time.

But then after one year being in the wilderness of Iceland, a couple found when running across the location found the phone lying there.

Of course, after such a long time, there was no battery left and no one ever thought that it could still run.

Surprisingly, after being charged and connected to a computer, the iPhone still worked normally, display a notification which read “Haukur’s iPhone.”

The local farmer still remembered Haukur and called him.

How can the iPhone 6S Plus from Apple survive after a 60-meter fall? Haukur explained that luckily, the phone landed on the moss, which could be as thick as 30cm. That’s probably why the phone survived miraculously.

The phone can still be used to surf the Internet, send videos and photos. The only thing it can’t do is making phone calls.

It might be pure luck to retrieve a lost phone after it fell from the sky, but having it operating again proves the iPhone 6S Plus’ durability.
