When people have way too much money and time and too little sense, the iPhone 6 seems to be a top target for boredom alleviation. After bendgate -- when the newest iPhone was released -- one YouTuber decided to put his very many Apple devices through even more torturous tests.
Dunked in Coca-Cola, baked in a Turkey for Thanksgiving, drilled, smashed, cooked with sugar like a caramelized apple treat, the iPhone 6, unsurprisingly, fails every one of these random, meaningless stress tests, turning the state-of-the-art smartphone into one very expensive and often times fire hazardous paperweight.
We do not recommend trying any of these at home in any way, shape or form.
Here are some high-quality tests by TechRax, a Ukranian YouTuber who says he has been "smashing technology since 2011."
