If you thought the sapphire display glass of the iPhone 6 is unbreakable, think again. There have been many videos and articles regarding the strength of the sapphire display that iPhone 6 will have. Most of these articles and videos have considered the sapphire display as unbreakable.
While this statement is true for most of the torture tests, there are a few ways to destroy the sapphire glass display of the iPhone 6. The glass is scratch-proof to metallic objects such as knives and keys and it doesn’t break even when it gets bent.
It is scratch-proof to metallic objects because sapphire is harder on the Mohs scale. No matter how sharp the knife may be, it simply cannot scratch the sapphire glass because it is a weaker material. However, this doesn’t mean it is unbreakable.
A video published on YouTube shows how you can easily destroy the iPhone 6 Sapphire Glass display. At first they try the usual tests: knife and keys test, bending test and nothing happens to the display.
But what if a car runs over it? It will shatter in a million pieces. Yes, the only way to break the sapphire glass is by running over with a car. But it doesn’t break only in 2 or 3 pieces. It will totally shatter in many pieces.
Even though the sapphire display is not unbreakable, chances to break it in real life situations are very low and we can even say impossible.
