Texas, July 31: A Texas businessman used an app to find his iPhone in a rural pasture after it fell 2,835 metres (9,300 feet) during a flight from Houston, the Guardian reported.
The Wichita Falls Times Record News reported on Thursday that Ben Wilson said his mobile phone still worked.
Wilson did not realise his phone had fallen until after had landed.
“The pressure popped and a newspaper flew out but I didn’t see the phone go,” he said. “After we got back I looked for it on the floor [of the plane] and in my briefcase but couldn’t find it.”
Wilson and an employee used the Find My iPhone app to narrow the search to near Jacksboro, more than 80km (50 miles) away.
The pair set out to search on Tuesday and ended up in a rural pasture. They found the phone under a mesquite tree.
