You’ll Never Guess the Insane Torture Tests Apple Puts iPhone Through Before Launch

What’s up tech junkies? You know who just hit the Apple jackpot? That’s right, your guy Marques Brownlee – the one and only MKBHD – recently scored an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Apple’s brutal iPhone torture chambers.

Recent Released: iPhone 15 Pro Max Price in Canada
And let me tell you, the durability gauntlet these things go through before hitting shelves will make your jaw hit the floor harder than a prototype iPhone smashing into concrete. We’re talking simulated underwater abysses, raging machine-powered storm systems, and robotic drop test nightmares straight out of a Terminator movie.

Are you ready to have your mind blown to shrapnel? Because Marques captured footage of some legitimately INSANE iPhone abuse that will leave you questioning whether to even take these mobile masterpieces out of the box.

Brace yourself as we dive into the deep end of Apple’s durability demolition derby:

First up, an entire room decked out with machines simulating every conceivable water hell – from drizzling rain trays to literal fire hoses blasting the smartphones with depths-of-the-ocean pressures. You’ll flinch just watching the iPodrazis undergo this liquid torture!

But hold onto your butts, because it gets even more intense. Apple has an actual INDUSTRIAL ROBOT programmed to repeatedly slam test phones at every sickening angle onto various bone-crushing surfaces. Thanks to Marques’ ultra slo-mo, you can literally see the titanium frames contort like they’re brushing up against the Upside Down.

Still not mind-melted enough? Get a load of the Infinite Shake-atorium, where Apple dials up custom frequencies to vibrate the everloving elastometer out of those iPhones. We’re talking simulating the spine-fusing rattle of motorcycle engines and deafening subway cars for EXTENDED periods. Makes me shudder just thinking about it.

Of course, Marques being Marques, he managed to secure a one-on-one with John freakin’ Ternus, Apple’s Head of Hardware Engineering! You’ll hear straight from big man himself why these premium handsets can’t just be tossed together with bubblegum and duct tape. Durability ain’t free, kids!

While all these iPhone torture tests seem gratuitous and over-the-top, it’s actually a calculated dance between survivability and repairability. Thankfully, Ternus teased that Apple won’t be sadists about repair forever and may ease up. That’s something, right?

At the end of the day, over 10,000 pre-release prototypes are demolished in the name of your iPhone withstanding whatever hell you’re bound to put it through. So the next time you think about tossing your $1k+ investment across the room, just remember the Sisyphean phone abuse happening behind Apple’s curtain.

Bottom line: Marques pulled back the veil on the insane lengths Apple goes to ensure your iPhone can survive a nuclear blast…or at least your next camping trip. I, for one, can’t wait to put my next phone’s resilience to the test!
