iPhone 15 Pro Max Survives RV Encounter: In an event that has captured the attention of tech enthusiasts and casual users alike, an iPhone 15 Pro Max demonstrated remarkable resilience after an encounter with a recreational vehicle (RV). The owner of the phone, known by the Reddit username “LillePuus1” shared a photo of their iPhone’s damaged screen on various social platforms, sparking interest and discussions across the internet.
Despite the unfortunate mishap, which left the screen of the iPhone 15 Pro Max with a spider web of cracks and a splash of colorful stripes, the device remained fully functional. This incident puts a spotlight on the super ceramic crystal panel, a groundbreaking material developed by Apple, which evidently played a crucial role in protecting the phone’s internals.
The super ceramic crystal panel is a composite of nano-scale ceramic crystals—known for their exceptional hardness—and glass. This innovative combination yields a surface that outperforms traditional glass in both toughness and crack resistance. In layman’s terms, the material is so adept at holding itself together that even when the screen shatters, it is less likely to break apart into small pieces.
Remarkably, the phone in question could still be unlocked and operated normally, accessing the desktop system and retaining all phone functionalities—a testament to the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s sturdy construction.
Alongside this durable feature, Apple offers AppleCare+ for the iPhone 15 Pro Max, acting as a form of “accidental insurance.” This service significantly reduces the cost of screen replacements and provides complimentary battery replacements should the capacity fall below 90% within the service period.
Apple’s official website shows that the screen replacement fee for the US version of iPhone 15 Pro Max is US$379. If you purchase AppleCare+ service, you can pay US$29 to replace the screen.
The durability of the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s screen is a reminder of the continuous advancements in technology aimed at making our devices not only smarter but also tougher, able to withstand the rigors of daily life—even when that includes an unexpected encounter with an RV.
