In a departure from the usual durability tests, YouTube channel host Zack Nelson from JerryRigEverything decided to take his iPhone 15 Pro Max examination to the next level by slicing it in half.

During this unconventional teardown of the broken iPhone 15 Pro Max, Nelson expressed his frustration with Apple’s extensive use of screws to attach components to the titanium frame. Cutting the phone open with an angle grinder confirmed Apple’s claim of using aluminum for the interior chassis.

The video reveals a unique construction method where two metals are thermally bonded: silver aluminum on the inside and golden titanium on the outside. The blogger speculates that Apple adopted this design due to aluminum’s favorable thermal properties, helping the smartphone dissipate heat more efficiently.

Surprisingly, the amount of titanium in the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max is minimal, with the frame thickness measuring only 1 mm. The bulk of the chassis is constructed using aluminum.

In conclusion, Nelson notes that this thermal bonding of metals makes the entire structure more delicate compared to previous iPhone models. As a precaution, it might be wise to invest in a sturdy, impact-resistant case to prevent irreversible damage to the device.
