Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max back panel cracks during durability test: Watch

A bend test conducted by the YouTube channel JerryRigEverything shows the iPhone 15 Pro Max failing the durability test.

The sale of the Apple iPhone 15 series has started across the globe and now it is available for interested buyers. Apple has used Grade 5 titanium in the frame of the iPhone 15 Pro Models. Both the 15 Pro as well as the 15 Pro Max models get a titanium frame. Apple claims that the use of titanium makes the devices stronger and slightly lighter. However, a bend test conducted by the YouTube channel JerryRigEverything shows the iPhone 15 Pro Max failing the durability test.

In the video uploaded by YouTube channel JerryRigEverything, the tester is seen to put the iPhone 15 Pro Max through various rounds of tests in order to show its durability. He starts with a primary scratch test on the display which is made of Ceramic Shield. He gets minor scratches at level 6 while deeper scratches are at level 7. The front glass is more durable than that of the other premium devices in the market.

The back panel is made up of glass and is not prone to scratches. The tester uses his knife for a scratch test on the sides and back of the devices. As the tester puts the display of the iPhone 15 Pro Max under lighter, the pixels remain unchanged even after 30 seconds. This does show the toughness of the 6.7 inch OLED display that offers 2000nits of outdoor brightness.

On the other hand, the frame is made of Titanium and the tester makes sure of it by putting it under a gas torch. The frame changes its colour to blue as it is heated. For those who are unknown, Titanium changes multiple colours as it is put under heat (i.e fire). The internal frame of the iPhone 15 Pro Max is however made up from recycled aluminum.

However, as the tester bends the iPhone 15 Pro Max its back panel cracks down. Even though the glass cracks, it does not shatter completely and remains still intact. This shows that the most premium iPhone 15 model does have a structural weakness. But as Apple has made the back glass modular, it takes just $200 to replace it instead of $500.
