Social media users continue to voice their concerns over the latest iPhone drop test off the Burj Khalifa, as the stunt raises the issue of safety for visitors at the venue.
Despite repeated attempts, Emaar was unable to provide a comment at the time of publication.The video, which has gone viral worldwide, shows Ukranian vlogger Tech Rax climbing to the 148th floor to throw his new iPhone 7 Plus.
Akash Joshi, said: “Are you mad? What about the safety of the people down there?”
When new models of phones come out, it is not uncommon for techies to carry out a drop test, which is done by dropping the device from a specific height – recreating scenarios where people accidentally drop their phones.
Rorz Powell, said: “Alright what a stupid thing to do. You could have… really hurt somebody and all this money your spending… some people in the world can't even afford an orange and you are there happily throwing [and] bashing phones up, throwing them off buildings.”  
Yoshi Marthadinata, said: “That is [a] stupid act. I don’t care if you destroyed your iPhone, but don't be stupid and act dangerous. At least you must make sure there is no one in the ground. ”
The Burj Khalifa stands at an impressive 830 metres, and when you throw a device from that height, one can only imagine the impact it will have when it lands.
Following the law of physics, all dropped objects experience constant acceleration, as they go faster and faster, with a constant increase in speed at a rate of just under 10 metres per second. But air resistance also increases the further the object has fallen.
When air resistance matches gravity, the object will achieve "terminal velocity," which means it has reached maximum speed.
In his video, TechRax said: '”I'm going to go the 148th floor and [expletive] drop test the iPhone 7 Plus.”
The phone did not survive the fall, as the vlogger is unable to track the device with his FindMyiPhone app.
He said: “This is fried, it’s totally destroyed. The impact hit it to the point that I can’t track it.
