Apple, with the release of the latest iPhone 12 models, made one of the biggest updates year after year to its devices in terms of durability. The Cupertino tech giant worked with a global glass maker, Corning, to introduce the new protective layer for its iPhones: the “Ceramic Shield.” Now an insurance company has tested their results and has rated the latest iPhone as the most durable smartphone they have ever tested.
The American insurance company Allstate decided to put Apple’s Ceramic Shield to the test after the company began shipping the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro, and they did. And that’s how it happened.
The ceramic shield is strong, but …
The iPhones underwent two drop tests, each on a concrete path, from a height of 6 feet. Both devices performed well after drop tests, although they did show some cracks on the screens. Now, the cracks in the iPhone 12 were negligible. However, the 12 Pro broke after the first drop.
Apple claims that its new Ceramic Shield is more powerful than any other smartphone glass in the market. Also, it is supposed to provide four times better drop protection than the screen of its predecessors, the iPhone 11 series.
Now, it is surely commendable that Apple has decided to work on the durability of its smartphones this year. However, it’s not drop-proof yet. Therefore, it is always a good idea to put a protective case on your iPhone, no matter how strong this protective layer is.
Allstate made a test video to promote their iPhone insurance that includes coverage for broken screens. And in this video, you can see their iPhone 12 crash tests. Check it out below.
Allstate said, “The iPhone 12 is the most durable smartphone we’ve ever tested.” Furthermore, they added: “Their ceramic shield is a leap forward in durability, though not indestructible.
While the iPhone 12 lived up to expectations, the 12 Pro, on the other hand, didn’t. So if you plan to get the new iPhones, be sure to invest in some protection plans and protective cases because these expensive devices still need that extra care.
