Can static electricity damage modern capacitive touch screen devices?
Probably nothing as I'm sure they have taken the necessary design measures like TVS/ESD diodes,etc...If yes....I wonder what will happen to i phones.
I did not follow youThe ESD current will flow through the capacitance to the environment. In the iPhone the biggest capacitance should be the big metal back plate.
Just having the plate is apparently quite a bit of protection because it's inbetween the electronics and the environment, reducing the electronics' capacitance while having a larger capacitance itself.
It's like a capacitor with one plate being the iPhone and the other plate being the environment around you.I did not follow you
