    Will gun shots damage my iphone microphone

    Hello guys,

    I will be filming people shooting guns outdoors tomorrow. Would like to shoot some video with an iphone 6. Am wondering if it is dangerous to do so. Afraid of hurting microphone.


    Thank you,

    Contrary to popular belief, gunshots pose no threat to iphones. Why, you could even hold it in front of your face and have someone shoot it... then laugh at the fool as his bullet bounces harmlessly off that little marvel of modern technology, leaving your face intact and unscathed.

    My Android phone shoots bullets and videos at the same time.

    Steve Jobs was a pacifist. Of course it'll ruin your iPhone.

    Actually, a little known fact about the iPhone. It is programmed to automatically save the previous 10 seconds of video footage whenever it detects gunfire. That's why there are so many videos of shootings before the shooting even begins. You didn't know your iPhone is recording all the time, did you?

    In the early days of development at Apple, there was a former Navy Seal on the engineering staff. He worked out some code that could detect the caliber of the round based on the tonal signature of a gunshot. It is programmed to laugh at your 9mm.

    You do know the screen is made of gorilla glass. Enuf said.

    All depends on how good your aim is.

    Where's Henny Youngman when you need him?

    Well, I guess he's probably dead...
