St. Patrick’s Day and your iPhone – a cautious tale

Don't get unlucky this St. Patrick's Day.

iCracked, St. Patrick's Day

We took a look at our historical data and found a pretty hilarious trend around St. Patrick’s Day.

iPhone repair requests across the nation start to soar the day after celebrations commence.  We’re not scientists over here, but we think we know what this means: green drinks + leprechauns = a deadly combination for iPhone screens.

The last three years, requests for phone repairs increase, on average, a wild fifteen percent the day after St. Paddy’s celebrations. 2015 was nearly 30%, crazy year apparently. And, previous years had the special day falling on a school night. This year it’s on a Friday…

While you’re participating in the green holiday, make sure you don’t sham-ROCK too hard and cele-BREAK your phone. See what we did there?

If you do find yourself with a broken phone in the coming days, give us a shout and we’ll come fix it in no time.
