    1. No, it’s a crumple zone like automobiles have. And since the iPhone is a “mobile” and it “auto”-mates a lot of stuff…..well the crumple zone just had to be added.

    1. It’s called SpideySense The App. It works with your Apple Watch! It gives you a vibrating warning seconds before danger strikes. It’s up to you to leap out of the way though. Being able to leap WAY out of the way is required for full effectiveness.

      1. The way things are going, something like that really doesn’t sound that far-fetched – you may be on to something.
