According to them (UAG Inc.), the space trip reached a height of 101,345 feet max, with temperatures as cold as -79 degrees Fahrenheit (-61.6667 degrees Celsius) and winds as strong as 70 mph (112.654 kph). The balloon raptured and the iPhone starts its free fall from space.

CNET reported that the cold temperature “killed the charge” in the phone’s battery, but the phone was “fully functional after being recharged.”
