In the wake of a surprising outcome during a recent bend test conducted on the iPhone 15 Pro Max, the news has been abuzz with revelations about the durability of the new titanium-made iPhones. The unexpected result featured the rear glass shattering, marking an unprecedented turn in iPhone durability testing. In the quest for answers, attention has shifted to the standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models, which sport aluminium frames. Let’s delve into how these variants performed when subjected to the same rigorous durability examination.

iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus Durability Test
Zack, the renowned reviewer from JerryRigEverything, conducted a similar bending test on the standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, replicating the conditions under which the iPhone 15 Pro Max had faltered. Surprisingly, these phones did not succumb to the same fate. In his video, Zack also initiated scratch testing, noting a remarkable advantage for iPhones with their Ceramic Shield. The iPhones exhibited superior scratch resistance compared to Android phones utilizing Gorilla Glass.
These devices displayed minor scratches at level 6 and somewhat deeper marks at level 7 on the Mohs Hardness Scale. Importantly, the scratches on the iPhones were notably less conspicuous compared to their Android counterparts, underscoring the durability of their Ceramic Shield technology.

Subsequently, Zack proceeded with the bend test on both the standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, and both devices emerged from the trial unscathed, showcasing their robust build quality. Interestingly, in a previous durability test video highlighting the iPhone 15 Pro Max, its smaller counterpart, the iPhone 15 Pro, also demonstrated resilience by not succumbing to the bending forces. This raises the question of what factors might contribute to the differences in durability between these iPhone models and their Pro Max counterparts.
