What Happens If You Drop Your iPhone and Then Accidentally Do a Burnout On It?

By Andrew Liszewski on at

It’s every smartphone owner’s worst nightmare: while climbing onto your motorcycle your phone accidentally falls out of your pocket and lands perfectly underneath your bike’s rear tire right before you’re ready to do a burnout to impress your friends. But it turns out it’s not the end of your device.

You’re probably going to have a heck of a time using your iPhone 6S with half the screen burned off and covered in a thick layer of black rubber, but the folks at TechRax were surprised to find that the smartphone they thought they were destroying in this unorthodox test still functioned.

The touchscreen still worked, the home button still worked, and the iPhone could even still be charged. However, convincing an Apple tech support genius that you just woke up and your iPhone looked like this might be a tough warranty claim sell. [YouTube via Technabob]
