These past few days, there's been a lot of brouhaha over the 'bending' problems of the new iPhones. So, perhaps in order to try and fix this PR nightmare, Apple has allowed the folks from TheVerge to see how the company tests its newest models. Here are some more details from the report:

A few blocks away from Apple's bustling campus in Cupertino is a rather nondescript building. Inside is absolutely the last place on earth you'd want to be if you were an iPhone. It's here where Apple subjects its newest models to the kinds of things they might run into in the real world: drops, pressure, twisting, tapping. Basically all the things that could turn your shiny gadget into a small pile of metal and glass.

Speaking to TheVerge, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller said the following:

“We’ve designed the product to be incredibly reliable throughout all your real world use. And in designing that we then have to validate heavily, and see how does it live up to real world use, and what are the forces and pressures on it, and how do you measure and prove that you’ve delivered on a specification.”

Dan Riccio, Apple's senior vice president of hardware engineering, also said:

"The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus are the most tested. As we add more and more features, we have to find out a way to break them before customers do."
