iPhone 6 Sapphire Glass Display Gets Run Over By A Car

With so many reports confirming the iPhone 6’s front panel to be of sapphire glass rather than gorilla glass, it seems certain that the next gen iPhone is offering a strengthened up version of a feature which is most likely to shatter upon an impact. Only a few days back, this front panel made from the sapphire glass was tested in the key and knife experiment which gives better and more realistic results. After having successfully passed that test, we now move on to the car test. It isn’t really unusual for popular devices to go through a bunch of quality assurance tests before they are thrown into the market. While some might feel that the key and knife test is somewhat close to reality because inside a purse or a pocket the phone can be exposed to these kinds of sharp tools but it is very unlikely that anyone would let their iPhone get crushed under a car’s tire. However, this car test is looked upon as the last and final verdict on durability.

Sapphire glass has already endured a handful of experiments and now a recent video shows things being taken a notch further. We have already seen the iPhone 6’s front panel being bent and lit up (which didn’t leave any significant damage) and now we are going to see the phone under an automobile. The sapphire glass has sailed through the many tough experiments including one with the nail and hammer but it finally gave way to the intense weight of the vehicle. We are still not going to say that Apple’s decision to move on to the sapphire glass wasn’t a wise one because in all its entirety, the device has proven to be a rugged.
