If you don't want your iPhone to meet an untimely demise, you might consider staying out of the kitchen. A new study by warranty provider SquareTrade has found that the majority of iPhones are damaged in the kitchen. A whopping 1 out of 5 iPhones were destroyed in the kitchen, according to those who were surveyed.

The living room was next highest with 18 percent of the surveyed people responding that their iPhone had been damaged in the living room. Following in a close third, the bathroom took out 16 percent of iPhones, which makes me wonder what people were doing in there when their iPhone was damaged.

 

The rest drop off from there, with bedrooms being the safest for an iPhone. Reportedly 9 percent of the iPhones were dropped into the toilet, which makes up just over half of all the iPhones that were destroyed in the bathroom. I guess the take-away from this is don't text and go to the bathroom.
