Dropping our iPhones reminds us that we can’t have nice things.

But seriously–90% of people drop their phone at least once a month, so you shouldn’t feel bad. We are constantly multi-tasking while holding our iPhones, it’s no wonder accidents happen. But there is one mistake you shouldn’t make when they do:

“Don’t ignore any hint of an issue,” Matthew Zieminski, Head of Mobile Device Repair at Puls tells us.

"A flickering LCD, a suddenly hot device, or even a slow/laggy interface that occurs after a drop is a sign that something got damaged during the incident," he warns.
