    According to the Apple website, the iPod Touch's Maximum operating altitude is 10,000 feet (3000 m). I'm just wondering, why? What will happen if I use it mid-flight in a plane?

    You do realize that being in mid flight in a plane wont affect the iPhone because the cabin is pressurized....

    If you take it above 10 000 feet, Steve Jobs will come and punch you in the nuts. Nah I think it would start behaving weirdly like lagging and just generally peforming slowly.

    I don't see why it would lag, space ships have computers and they work fine. Maybe the aceloromiter or something like that, but I used my iPhone on a plane and watched movies and stuff. The guy next to me had verizon and had signal on the plane lucky basterd lol, I didn't

    My old iPod 5th gen would lock up and you could hear the hard drive clicking when I flew with it

    I flew last year with my ipod and had no problems what so ever? Maybe its a warning for people not to catapult their ipods into the sky as a gift to god? Meh, I dunno why that warning even exists.

    You guys are not getting it
    This does not applies to artificially pressurized environments like planes or space ships

    You would have to be goku and fly over 3000M for it to affect the phone
    Its an hypothetical warning, that states how much the iPhone can take on a open environment before it malfunctions

    I honestly love how you brought DBZ to this.

    The warning is there because it effect the Accelerometer. That's all for the non iP4 devices. If you own a iP4 both accelerometer and gyro will be effected. It does NOT effected by the pressure of the iDevice. Apparently your signal also?
