A blue plastic version is thrown in a plastic bag that also contains keys and pocket change, and then gets scratched with a car key.
It eventually proved to be quite resistant.
A second video shows a red casing being shaken in a plastic bag alongside coins, keys and nails, and coming out completely unscratched.
The site Apple Daily found the thickness of the shell at 8.98mm, which is thicker than the aluminum iPhone 5 that comes at 7.6mm.
The cheaper iPhone 5C is expected to be presented on September 10, alongside the iPhone 5S, and it is rumored to be available in five different color options.
