The iPhone 15 series is currently all the talk due to the fact that the smartphones only recently became available for purchase. Both the iPhone 15 Pro and the iPhone 15 Pro Max have improved features, including a new titanium finish, superior cameras, an upgraded CPU, and upgraded screens. However, it seems that Apple’s latest and greatest iPhone, the iPhone 15 Pro Max, is not as robust as it ought to be.
iPhone 15 Pro Max Durability Test
The findings of YouTuber JerryRigEverything’s durability test on the iPhone 15 Pro Max are, to put it mildly, unimpressive. The YouTuber is surprised even at how quickly the iPhone 15 Pro Max gave up. Let us discuss the specifics of what transpired.
The standard testing procedure is applied on the iPhone 15 Pro Max, commencing with the scratch test. Apple claims that the Ceramic Shield on the front of the iPhone 15 Pro Max is “tougher than any smartphone glass.” When Zack’s lighter is used to test the front glass, it demonstrates its resilience once more because there is no reaction.
Level 6 is when the scratches first appear, while Level 7 has “deeper grooves,” but they are just barely visible. Knife scratches are common on the phone’s sides and buttons, although none of them comes off. Furthermore, there is no scratching on the matte glass rear. Thus far, the outcomes are both typical and, in several instances, remarkable. Now for the challenging part.
Zack begins to bend the iPhone, and the glass back splits instantly. Grade 5 Titanium is what Apple utilizes in the iPhone 15 Pro versions. Zack found it astonishing that the matte glass of the iPhone 15 Pro broke so easily, given that most phones don’t shatter and iPhones don’t break at all. In jest, he says that if anyone is affected, the good news is that Apple has lowered the price of replacing the glass back from $500 to $200.
The glass is broken, yet the iPhone still functions as intended with the frame still in place. However, because the back is gone, it would need to be fixed. Compared to stainless steel, which Apple utilized for the earlier Pro models, titanium is thirty percent stronger.
