The Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPhone has a new use beyond its traditional phone functions, texting, talking photos, and playing music. Like a bullet-proof vest, an iPhone is protection against gun wielding criminals, at least in one case. An armed robber shot at a student in Fresno, California. His iPhone saved him.

According to The Fresno Bee:
A Fresno State student is lucky to be uninjured after an armed robbery near the campus in which a gunshot fired by the thief was blocked by the victim’s iPhone, police said.

Fresno police Lt. Joe Gomez said officers responded to a 911 call at Campus Edge Apartments on Bulldog Lane around 11 p.m. Monday. Detectives located the victim, who told them he had been walking home and nearly reached his front door when a man approached him from behind.

The man said something the victim didn’t understand and pointed a black semi-automatic handgun at him, then reached for the student’s laptop bag, Gomez said. The robber fired one shot, which shattered the iPhone in the victim’s pants pocket.

For anyone interested in capturing the shooter, the paper also gave a description.
