Of course, I think that is overstating the obvious!
I've dropped mine out of a case and been lucky, but I've also watched 2 iPhones dropped onto a kitchen floor in the same manner and both ended up with cracks! It's all in the luck of the bounce! Russian Roulette!
But having a case ensures peace of mind for those moments when you have to stay on the phone at odd times, when your hands are full with kids, carrying groceries, etc. The moments in life when your not just sitting at a Starbucks.
Or keeping your kids entertained with your phone and not have to worry about building soft things around them to keep your phone safe in case they drop it.
No case appeals to more people than something stupid like Samscum's diving into a pool with your phone or answering it while eating ribs!
Not sure I believe this is any new iPhone design, but I do believe the rumor of an iPhone that rights it self to fall a certain way to protect it! This sounds like Apple and if its thicker for added protection and I don't have to buy a Shit case I'm all for it!
