With the series of iPhone 12 terminals, Apple began to protect its smartphones with a material called Ceramic Shield. Now we know how resilient it really is.
If you wanted to buy an iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro in the hope that it will be more resistant to shocks than any other Apple terminal in the last decade, it would be good to see the clip below.
In the official presentations, Apple boasted enthusiastically about the resistance of the new phones. At the launch conference, they insisted that this is the biggest leap forward when it comes to the durability of an iPhone. In an almost suspicious way, the Cupertino giant’s officials insisted that the iPhone 12 is 4 times more resistant to crashes compared to the old models.
Predictably, from the moment the new iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro arrived in stores, more users rushed to knock them to the ground. Such videos go slightly viral, and while you might get goosebumps when someone destroys an expensive smartphone for the sake of YouTube views, it’s unlikely to happen again.
As you will see in the video below, it is very important to remember that the new Ceramic Shield only protects the front of the phone. On the back, you still have a not very special bottle, one that breaks easily. As for construction details, it’s important to know that the iPhone 12 has an aluminum edge, while the Pro versions use stainless steel.
Due to the differences in construction and the degree of strength is different. As a nice detail, the front screen hides a bit in the frame. Thus, steel and aluminum dampen the slaps a bit. All in all, the front is hard to break, but the back is very sensitive. For this reason, it would be good to take a cover immediately after a possible purchase. Not to be overlooked is the fact that, in the US, it costs $ 280 to replace the screen on the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.
