I understand that sometimes government is slow to get technology right. And I fully sympathize; it’s hard to keep up with all the trends and new gadgets and accessories. Everything changes so quickly these days.
But this news is disappointing. It’s just wasteful. Those iPhones are expensive. I know; I have one. What with this being an election year, all the candidates are promising to cut waste. It might not be too long before you can’t even get a new iPhone if you damage the old one.
Don’t worry. This one is pretty simple to explain. You almost had it right, you just got the steps in the wrong order.
If you put the iPhone in the Apple case first, then the phone won’t get cracked when you drop it.
Also, I don’t recommend dropping it, if you can help it.
