The titanium sides on the new iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max should, in theory, make the devices more robust than their stainless steel-sided predecessors. It’s too soon to make any firm judgments about the iPhone 15 Pro’s durability because it hasn’t been around for very long, but early reports don’t look good.
The iPhone 14 Pro was recently found to be significantly more durable than the iPhone 15 Pro in a series of drop tests conducted in Australia, and now Zack Nelson has posted a video on his JerryRigEverything YouTube channel warning that the iPhone 15 Pro Max should be handled carefully.
The phone’s display is very scratch-resistant, with visible scuffs only appearing at Mohs level 7. Although the back is scratch-resistant, the titanium frame is not. The camera lenses are also extremely scratch-resistant.
Although the internal structure of the iPhone 15 Pro Max is made of aluminum, the bands are made of titanium. Apple joined the two metals using a thermo-mechanical process. Removable back glass on the phone should make it easier to repair.

Nelson twisted the phone, and the back glass quickly cracked. This was unexpected because most phones, particularly iPhones, perform better in bend tests. According to his theory, the reason why the back glass cracked so easily is either because titanium has a higher tensile strength than aluminum or because it is less elastic than aluminum. Allowing the glass to bear the full force of the pressure.
Another explanation is that because the glass is now modular and not fixed to the back of the phone. It is now more likely to break. The only bright spot in this situation is that replacing the back glass is now less expensive than it was.
