The feud between Android and iPhone lovers has been constant for the better part of a decade now. While Android’s pocket-friendly price point, unlimited customization and large screen sizes appealed to users; iPhone maintained it’s aspirational value. Yet recent evidence shows it may have more to offer.
An Australian man was unexpectedly attacked by an arrow, but he managed to block it with his iPhone. The uncanny shield worked perfectly and saved the man’s life.
The 43-year-old residing in Nimbin in New South Wales was confronted by his attacker early on Wednesday right outside his home. It was 9am when the man raised his iPhone to take a picture of the attacker. However, the unnamed miscreant promptly fired an arrow at him. The NSW Police attested in a statement that the arrow pierced the smartphone.
Luckily, the victim escaped relatively unscathed with just a minor laceration on his chin. All thanks to his iPhone! Take a look at another picture of the device with the arrow still lodged in it!
“It’s alleged the man fired the arrow at the resident which pierced through the man’s mobile phone causing the phone to hit him in the chin. It left a small laceration that didn’t require medical treatment,” said the police in a statement.
