As of this writing, millions of people are likely already fretting over their new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, picking out all manner of clunky cases to protect their new investment. But at least a handful of folks out there are torturing Apple's latest and greatest instead.

After much waiting, anticipation and so many rumors, there's something darkly satisfying about deliberating dropping and drowning the final product while many people are still waiting to get their hands on one. While CNET also puts the new iPhones through their paces in full iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus reviews, the folks at gadget warranty outfit Squaretrade like to be a little more harsh.

In the video below, both new models get pushed across a table, dunked and dropped. Both iPhones are able to withstand 10 seconds underwater just fine. After six drops from 4 feet high, Squaretrade reports that the iPhone 6 was barely damaged, while the iPhone 6 Plus saw its front and back panels separate and the sound stopped working shortly thereafter.

Check out the full testing video below, and let us know how your new iPhone has fared in any early accidental drop tests of your own in the comments or by tweeting @crave.
