Apple iPhone withdrawal apparently exists – causes ‘serious psychological and physiological effects’

Are you an Apple iPhone fan? Have you gotten your hands on each and every iPhone that have been release throughout the years. Have you gotten your hands on the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus? If so, what would you think would happen if your precious iPhone was taken away from you? Would the loss affect you in any way? According to a new study conducted by the University of Missouri, iPhone addiction does exist, and iPhone separation could cause “serious psychological and physiological effects.”


According to Russell Clayton, a doctoral candidate at the MU School of Journalism and lead author of the study, “Our findings suggest that iPhone separation can negatively impact performance on mental tasks.

“Additionally, the results from our study suggest that iPhones are capable of becoming an extension of our selves such that when separated, we experience a lessening of ‘self’ and a negative physiological state.”
