iPhone 6 display survives another torture test, until a car shows up

iPhone 6 display hammer test

The front panel for the iPhone 6 has been one of the most oft-leaked parts of the still unannounced device, and today we get another video that supposedly puts the upcoming device’s screen under the ultimate torture test.

At the beginning of July, we’ve already seen two different videos supposedly showcasing what is to be believed as the iPhone 6’s front panel, including the 4.7-inch display and its sapphire glass construction. In the videos, we’ve seen just how bendable the screen is, and what kind of items you can scratch against it without seeing any ramifications on the display itself. In this new video, though, the torture test gets taken to some extremes with a white version of the front panel.

The video is in Chinese, but you won’t have an issue understanding what’s going on here if you don’t understand the language. We get to see the rumored iPhone 6 display fall under the pointed tips of not only keys and coins, or even box cutters or just nails, but also get to see how the display holds up when someone hammers nails against it. Surprisingly, the rumored sapphire glass holds up quite well.

However, it doesn’t last long when a car gets tossed into the mix. When run over with a car tire, the sapphire glass shatters. So, if we’re taking these videos for what they are, your iPhone 6 should be okay if you take it to a construction site, even if you drop it, but don’t ever run it over with a car. Of course, things could change when the display is actually attached to a final device, but for now it’s fun to see what kind of harassment the display can take. Even if we still don’t know for sure whether or not it’s really sapphire glass or not.

Apple supposedly has enough sapphire glass, thanks to an uptick in construction, to supply both the 4.7- and 5.5-inch iPhone 6, but there has been some speculation that the new devices may not boast the new display. You can check out the full video below.
