Owning iDevices is expensive and not only because you pay a premium for the device itself.

Since 2007, Americans have flushed $5.9 billion down the drain to have their iPhones repaired.

Flush, it seems, is a pretty apt word for all this money spent as it turns out that nearly 2 out of 10 of damaged iPhones and iPads in the U.S. have been victims of falling into either a pool or toilet.

That’s according to Cupertino Phone Repair which made the insightful infographic below.

Other insights that can be gained from the infographic are: accidental damage is 10 times more likely than loss or theft, iPhone damage is usually screen case- or electrical-related, and 17 percent of owners have damaged their iPhones more than once.

Not that a cracked screen stops some people. 1 out of 10 iDevice owner still uses their device even if the screen is cracked.

As for iPads, 30 percent will be accidentally damaged in the first three years while 10 percent do not get past the first year without any damage.

Learn about the risks to your iDevices, and more, by reading the infographic made by Cupertino Phone Repair.
