Apple also stressed the fact that they are performing rigorous testing throughout the development of the new iPhone.

Apple does sit tests and that 100s of Apple employees "lived" with the iPhone 6 before Apple launched the device. Apple even went so far to grant CNBC access to their testing facility. Watch the video below.
