What will they think of next? According to YouTuber TechRax, it seems that testing the limits of our iPhones has become a popular trend. Here are some of the wackiest ways they’ve tested iPhones to the point of no return. We fix a lot of problems, but we definitely don’t fix (most of) these.
Do NOT try any of these at home! We advise keeping your phone safe in a protective case and away from these extreme elements.
What happens if you drop your rose gold iPhone 6S in molten hot lava?
It….melts. Maybe if advances continue with the Wolverine , this won’t the case. But for now, we won’t be testing any lava-burned iPhones for repairability.
What happens if you taser an iPhone 6 Plus?
The internals of the iPhones, especially the battery and logic board, hold electric charges that do not react well with external puncturing or electricity surges. No surprise here that the entire phone is fried after several taser attempts.
iPhone 7 vs. the world’s strongest acid?
How does Fluoroantimonic acid, the world’s strongest acid act to an iPhone 7? Watch here to find out.
Can an iPhone 7 Survive From a Space Drop Test?
Yes, it turns out. If a phone can handle a drop from 100,000 feet without the screen cracking, how in the world (pun intended) are we breaking the things so frequently from less than five feet?
What happens if you trap an iPhone 7 in rubber?
Nothing, it seems. TechRax submerged a brand new iPhone 7 right out of the box in rubber, only to have the rubber act as a protective agent rather than a harmful substance.
What happens if you squash a new iPhone 7 with a metal roller?
Nothing good. Metal rollers are meant to make objects paper thin, something that doesn’t bode well for an electronically-charged device. First the beautiful screen goes, turning the LCD in literal dust, and then the battery makes contact with the metal roller, causing a combustion.
Again, we DO NOT recommend trying these at home. What we do recommend is giving us a shout if you find yourself with a damaged phone (preferably one that hasn’t been submerged in lava).
