MMA fighter KO's the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus
To test the glass on all four handsets, the iPhones were put through the "Rockhold Roundhouse Kick Test." The name of the test speaks for itself, and each kick drove an iPhone into a wall where it would take a beating, and crumple to the floor as a broken pile of electronics. The result? According to the boxer himself, the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus "are tougher, but not that tough."
In a nod to #bendgate, the last test was called the "Rockhold submission bend test" and it consisted of the fighter trying to bend the iPhone 6 Plus and the iPhone 6s Plus. The former was bent and destroyed in seconds. The latter, sporting the stronger series 7000 aluminum, was harder to bend and even Luke thought so. "That was tough," he exclaimed, after it took every ounce of his energy to snap the new model.
Considering that the chances of your new iPhone getting destroyed by a MMA fighter are slim, most iPhone owners aren't going to feel the need to extend their warranty just from watching this ad. Perhaps Square Trade figured that seeing an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus destroyed would shake up current owners of the device so much, that they would rush to the phone to call them.
