According to a new report, iPhone users are 46% less likely than other smartphone owners to need a replacement device due to accidental damage — but 65% more likely to have their device stolen or lost.
The insight comes from third-party insurance company ProtectCell, who based their findings on 2 million policies with various mobile device owners.
Other notable findings in the report note that when limiting repairs to screen damage or breakage, iPhone users are 11% less likely to require repairs compared to other smartphone owners — suggesting that either iPhones are sturdier devices than many of the other rival smartphones, or simply that their owners tend to be more careful with them.
ProtectCell also suggests that tablet users are, by and large, more careful than smartphone users — being 55% less likely to file for a replacement due to broken screens or other damage.
