Apple iPhone 14 passes durability test

Zach, aka JerryRigEverything, is here to test the durability of the iPhone 14 with his standard durability tests, including, scratching, burning and bending. With a few internal changes, the design of the 14 is basically unchanged from the iPhone 13 from a year ago. One important hardware change is that Apple now makes it simpler to remove the rear glass and maintenance costs are considerably cheaper.

As per typical, the screen scratch test initiates the durability evaluations. This test indicates tiny scratches at level 6 on the Mohs scale while deeper grooves at level 7. The phone’s metal sides withstand multiple close calls with a blade before showing their true colors. The iPhone 14’s rear cameras are advertised as having sapphire crystal lens coverings, however the scratch test shows that’s not the case because scratches start to show up at level 6.

Several dead pixels that do not recover from the extended screen burn-in test are the predicted outcome. Last but not least is the bend test, and the iPhone 14 exhibits no symptoms of bending under strain.
