Apple iPhone 6S durability TestEver since Apple iPhone 6S was launched at the Apple event along with iPhone 6s Plus, Apple TV and iPad Pro; the talking point has been its strength and durability. The bendgate issue has been laid to rest and that is one major monkey Apple wanted off their back. However that doesn’t mean that iPhone 6S won’t have to go through some barbaric and painful tests.

So without wasting much of your time, here is a compilation of the most gruesome tests that iPhone 6S has gone through so far. Not to forget that there could be more coming in the future, after all people are crazy out on the web.

WARNING: Don’t try and emulate any of the given below tests as they can damage your device which may not be covered under guarantee/warranty from Apple.

# iPhone 6S Waterproofing test

First up we have the very basic waterproof test for the Apple iPhone 6S and the device clears it with flying colors along with iPhone 6S Plus. The phone can survive an accidental drop into water and survive for almost an hour with no significant damage to the screen or camera.

# Bendgate is not an issue

Although, Apple decided to reinforce the iPhone 6S casing with three times stronger aluminum material, that isn’t deterring people from testing it to the limits of bending. Watch this video by [EverythingApplePro] who test the phone beyond its limits but still impresses with its durability.

# Hammer & knife assault

Another basic level test that is more demanding in severity. The iPhone 6S is tested for knife scratches and it does well but when camera lens is grinded with a sharp knife edge there is some minor damage to the camera. As for the hammer test, the tester took it too far and smashed the poor phone with 2 pounds of hammer head-on into the screen which obviously damaged it.

# The paint shaker ordeal

Paint shakers are meant to shake the paint for consistency and let me tell you, they are very strong. Youtube user [TechRax] who is known for putting gadgets through really tough times puts an iPhone 6S inside a paint shaker and gives it a good rumble. Amazingly the gadget survives this stomach crunching test just with a minor dent to the back panel.

# Boiling hot water test

You got to be kidding me. Putting a phone inside boiling water and expecting it to survive is asking for too much. But to my amazement the Apple iPhone 6S comes out strong by all the pandemonium. Not only does it survive the boiling hot water one time but multiple times. Not to mention it gets refrigerated in between to get cool. Pretty amazing it has to be said.

# Hot lava is too hot

If boiling water was enough for an iPhone 6S, [TechRax] too the phone and put it into boiling hot lava. Now, that is pushing it too far and the phone instantly catches fire. After examining the phone for a few seconds, he puts it back into the lava to be doomed forever. Boy, what an ending!

# iPhone 6S Vs. MMA fighter

MMA fighters are one of the toughest humans on the planet and it is good idea to pin Apple iPhone 6S against one of them. Watch this video created by [SquareTrade Lab] that shows the power of a MMA fighter in destroying anything that comes his way.

# iPhone 6S Vs. Ferrari


A Ukrainian guy has been doing some crazy experiments with gadgets and technology since 2009 and it was only time before he took iPhone 6S to the extreme torcher. Want to know how strong iPhone 6S actually is when staked against a Ferrari? Watch the video above and you’ll be surprised, guaranteed!
