In Australia, the iPhone saved the life of its owner from a flying arrow during an attack on its home. This was reported by the Richmond police.
Richmond police officers were called to the scene in the town of Nimbin in the north of New South Wales after a series of reports that a man had been shot with a bow.
According to local media, the 43-year-old man took out his iPhone to photograph the attacker, at this moment the archer. The arrow hit the iPhone, and the arrowhead partially pierced the device through.
The victim refused to provide medical care due to the absence of injuries, but on his face there was an abrasion from hitting the iPhone on the chin.
The 39-year-old assailant was arrested at the scene by the police. He was charged with the commission of a crime: an assault that entailed physical harm. However, the police released him on bail pending trial on April 15.
Despite the fact that Apple does not advertise any of its products as a subject for physical protection, this is not the first time that a company's gadget saves the life of an owner. For example, in 2017, the witness of the shooting at the airport of Fort Lauderdale discovered that the MacBook Pro, in its backpack, had a stray bullet that could cause serious injuries.
