iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus survived the test that destroyed iPhone 15 Pro Max

Little siblings of the iPhone 15 Pro Max got flying colors in the gruesome test without issues.

iPhones don’t break, at least, that’s what a popular YouTuber expects to see this year. However, one model did and it surprised many people.

To know if every model in the latest iPhone series is breakable, Zack Nelson of the YT channel JerryRigEverything put two models to the test. Both the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus were subjected to durability trials.

If you didn’t know, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are lesser kins of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. The lesser models only have an aluminum frame, compared to the titanium found in the better versions.

As usual, Nelson started with a box cutter to simulate a scratch test. The Ceramic Shield on iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus resisted the cutting until the scratching went up to level six on the Mohs hardness scale.

The level seven did a really big score on the shield. However, the damages left by this test were not as severe as those on other phones. The two iPhones endured!

For the finale, Nelson used his fingers to bend both iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus. The bending did not damage either device, giving insight into the better structural integrity of the aluminum frame.

There’s no solid explanation yet as to why the aluminum/titanium hybrid material on the iPhone 15 Pro Max failed. That’s contrast to another survivor, iPhone 15 Pro, which has the same hybrid material.

Anyway, of four of the models, three of the iPhone 15s lived to see another day!
