Does iOS4 / iPhone4 continually log Accelerometer data?
My iPhone just took a 3 inch drop from my hand to my mouse pad (while in a bumper, mind you) and the screen cracked. It's not a large crack, it's a microfracture, but it's there.
I'd like to know if the iPhone is recording accelerometer data while it is running as a kind of background log, so that I can pull the information and find out just how much of a G shock that the device took falling from 3 inches.
My rationale for believing that such a thing exists is that I don't put it past Apple to do something like this so that if someone sends their phone with a broken screen in and is lying about having dropped it, they can point to that data and say they have proof. That doesn't mean it does, just that I can find a way to convince myself it does.
Does anyone know if such a thing exists?
EDIT: Yes, before anyone mentions it, this did happen to me once before, but last time it was a 2 foot drop, and I managed to convince Apple to replace it for free under warranty. I don't expect that's going to happen a second time. Secondarily, no, I'm not exaggerating even a little bit about the distance of the drop. It truly was 3 inches out of my hand and onto its corner, in the bumper, on my mouse pad. Poof, microfracture at the bottom right of the phone near the home button all the way to the edge. Needless to say I immediately ditched the bumper and went back to my rubber case.
