iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Breakability Test
What happens when you drop an Phone six times? Here’s Apple’s new iPhone 6 is the company’s biggest, most powerful and best-selling smartphone yet — and now it’s the most unbreakable
Apple’s new iPhone 6 is the company’s biggest, most powerful and best-selling smartphone yet — and now it’s the most unbreakable, the Bruce Willis of mobile tech. Hardware protection company SquareTrade put the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus through its patented Breakability test, reporting some best-ever durability scores for the hot handsets.
As it does with every major new smartphone, SquareTrade tested the iPhone 6’s fortitude by simulating a handful of real-world situations in which people destroy their devices. Both new iPhones survived the company’s slide test, in which a smartphone is thrust across a wooden table to test its risk of falling off.

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were similarly resilient during SquareTrade’s water test, in which they were submerged in water for 10 seconds with music playing. Both phones kept ticking after taking a swim, with audio stopping only temporarily on both.
The grand finale of SquareTrade’s testing came in the form of six consecutive high-speed drop tests from a height of 4 feet. The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 suffered little more than a few scratches during this test, making it the best-performing smartphone yet for SquareTrade’s drop test. The 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus’ screen survived the fall, but the front and back panels did come apart as a result of the impact.
