Insurance company Allstate tested the new iPhone 112 ceramic shield screen and found that it is the strongest they’ve tested but it is not invincible.
Allstate tested the new iPhone’s breaking point through a series of drop tests that includes a massive six-foot drop onto concrete. Apple had claimed the new ceramic shield is 4 times stronger than previous technologies. The new phones were dropped on the screen, sides and back.
When it came to glass damage the iPhone 12 Pro did far worse than the iPhone 12. Allstate found dropping the Pro on its back its screen would shatter, this was not the case with the iPhone 12 which suffered little damage. For face down drops the 12 Pro cracked its screen while the iPhone 12 only received small cracks.
Neither model seemed to suffer any functional damage despite screen damage. Both faired much better than an iPhone 11 model.
