1 month ago   |   By Ubergizmo

A couple of friends went for a ride in a vintage biplane in Ames, Iowa earlier this month. One of them took out her phone to take pictures, as you do in this day and age, and dropped it. The iPhone fell almost 1,000 feet to the ground that would have been enough for many to assume that it was gone forever.

However, the woman was reportedly able to find the device with her unit's Find My iPhone feature, without a single scratch and still working as normal.
According to a report from Iowa NBC affiliate WHO-TV , Sarvinder Naberhaus and Donna Johnson, who had both known each other since high school, went to...
