The Top 5 Ways to Break an iPhone polled 1,486 UK adults who have all broken, dented, or scratched an iPhone handset. They found:

The average broken iPhone is destroyed or damaged just 10 weeks after purchase – and under 6 weeks for an iPhone 4 or 5.

And when they’re not being broken, it seems they’re being stolen. With a recent report from the Home Office estimating more than 700,000 handsets were stolen just last year.

So what are the top 5 ways to break your iPhone?

1. Dropped on a hard surface (43%)

2. Fallen into water (toilet, sink, bath, etc) (35%)

3. Stood or sat on accidentally (32%)

4. Left on roof of car (12%)

5. Broken by child (10%)
