iPhone Life Magazine - - Istats -

Peo­ple can suf­fer from gen­uine sep­a­ra­tion anx­i­ety when parted with their iPhones, ac­cord­ing to a study pub­lished in Jan­uary by the Uni­ver­sity of Mis­souri. Par­tic­i­pants showed im­me­di­ate signs of dis­tress when com­plet­ing word puzzles with­out their iPhones. The study found de­creased per­for­mance and a sig­nif­i­cant in­crease in anx­i­ety, heart rate, and blood pres­sure when sep­a­rated, re­veal­ing just how ad­dicted we've be­come to tech­nol­ogy.
