The iPhone 6 Plus is definitely a beleaguered handset, as though it is the poster boy for bullying compared to its smaller sized sibling. Perhaps this is because the handset is easier to procure compared to the iPhone 6? Regardless, we have seen the iPhone 6 Plus go through a fair number of abuses – or tests, if you will, such as a drop test, being shot at with a 50-caliber rifle, being placed under liquid nitrogen while meeting its grisly end afterwards, not to mention being bent using one’s bare hands alone. This time around, when the iPhone 6 Plus goes up against thermite, you know for sure what the foregone conclusion is – it might not even need any human hands to bend in such a case as its courage melts in the face of 2,500 to 3,000-degrees centigrade (4,500 to 5,400 degrees Fahrenheit).
Yup, that is correct. Thermite is used by the military for destroying weapons caches, artillery pieces, and sensitive equipment, not to mention having its fair share of a number of commercial and industrial uses, ranging from locomotive and rail applications, in addition to cut large metal structures. The iPhone 6 Plus might not have fared as well as it did (relatively speaking) thanks to its specially strengthened glass that helped preserve the shape of the iPhone 6 Plus somewhat, never mind that the rest of the smartphone has melted away into part of being a T-1000.
