    At school, I keep my iPhone in my backpack. So today, I went to the cafeteria, and I set my backpack down where my phone inside was at the top. Someone walked by, and stepped really hard right on where my phone was. It was a 6s in an Otterbox Defender case. I haven't taken it out of the case yet, but I'm worried that there was bending or internal damage, or any damage causing unresponsiveness to the screen. Is it possible these things may happen?

    Sure they may happen. Take it out and check. At the risk of sounding blunt, you're certainly not going to know until you look. The fact you had it in a defender case certainly reduces the likelihood of any severe damage. I'd be MUCH less worried about internal damage If there's nothing wrong externally

    Ditto. I doubt anything is wrong internally if the exterior of the phone looks OK. Had you dropped the phone, then there is always the chance of interior damage (though unlikely. These iPhones are solid as a rock internally).

    So instead of just opening and checking yourself, you went online to ask other people who have no access to your phone?

    I was thinking the same exact same thing lol.

    That being said, your phone should be perfectly fine since it was in that ennourmous bulky case ,but hey at least your phone is good though ! And you obviously punched that person that stepped on your phone right ? Lol (kidding)

    You may have a try on the Iphone replacement phone screen. I haven't use it but i think it may be available by the situation you said

    Here is your answer -

    Schrödinger's cat

    a cat imagined as being enclosed in a box with a radioactive source and a poison that will be released when the source (unpredictably) emits radiation, the cat being considered (according to quantum mechanics) to be simultaneously both dead and alive until the box is opened and the cat observed.

    Kids man, kids. The first answer is to run to the internet instead of doing the obvious. Didn't even have the foresight to post pictures, just wanted to share the info with someone for validation.

    I'm even suspicious of whether this even happened. OP posted of another problem even earlier...

    In any event, we can't tell you if the phone is damaged.
    /sheesh /

    If you check the OP's other threads, he/she seems to suffer an endless parade of paranoia-inducing incidents, real or imagined. Remarkable.

    What do we expect when you look at what our educational system has become. Afraid we have see the best times and the rest is going to be somewhat dark.

    Sorry, I know I should have taken it out of the case first to check, but I have OCD, and I wanted other's opinions first because of it immediately. I took it out of the case after I posted this, and it seems fine on the exterior. Again, I'm sorry for not checking before I posted this.

    You need to take a big deep breath and just enjoy your iPhone. Apple has put a lot of technology into it so you have to worry less and just enjoy using it.

    Yes clearly attention seeking.

    What does being OCD have to do with you coming to the web for advice that to any typical person would be obvious? As a matter of fact if you're so OCD the FIRST thing you would have done was look at it..... seems you just want attention.

    Get a new phone if it's spoilt. Don't worry about nothing over a small object. It's just a phone. I'm sure there are other more important things to worry about.

    For me, it is just really hard
    Im not attention seeking, I'm just really paranoid about this. I did post this right after, and then immediately took it out of the case.

    Just asking you to try. Also hanging around these forums and reading others crazy comments will not help you a bit. Just need to decide to use your iPhone and not worry about it. I know it will not be easy but you got to try.

    Everyone here at MacRumors seems to have OCD.

    As others stated, its only a phone, if something's wrong with it after examining you can then determine a course of action.
