Can Ceramic Shield really protect your new iPhone 13?
On Friday, Sept. 24, Apple finally started to deliver iPhone 13 devices to each new owner of the model. Of course, as early as now, reviews on its specs, and additional things you should know about the device were already out in the open.
But, apart from all those things, durability is one thing that makes the new iPhone different from other models and phone brands. Compared to iPhone 12 series, the new devices are heavier. Thus, raises questions on whether that will add to its durability factor or not?
iPhone 13 durability test
If you are worried that your new iPhone 13 is not as durable as Apple promised it to be, no need to worry. Just like before, the YouTube page called Everything Apple Pro is back to review such devices.
As Apple announced, the new set of iPhone models are built with the Ceramic Shield that reportedly allows the iPhone to be durable than ever. But, is that true?
To test this claim, Everything Apple Pro decided to buy the newest iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Since Apple said that the Ceramic Shield is the “toughest glass in any smartphone,” the YouTube page made sure that the test is as “concrete” as possible.
By dropping the phones one by one through a concrete cement floor, Everything Apple Pro found out if Apple is lying or not. Here’s the video for you to watch:
To prove that the video is real, the host first showed the unboxing of the two iPhone 13 models. The first one was the gold-colored iPhone 13 Pro, and the next one was the blue-colored iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The first test done was from waist height drop. Both models survived the first set of drop tests. But, when the host drop both devices from his head height, the gold iPhone 13 Pro’s ceramic shield screen got broken. Despite that, the system was still functioning well— so still hats off to that.
The last drop test, however, destroyed both iPhones as expected. From the 10-foot height drop, both the sides (ceramic part and non-ceramic) of the Pro and Pro Max were damaged. Still, the camera, face ID, and screen of both models were working, according to the test.
In conclusion, the 10-foot height drop is already high enough for any smartphone model to be destroyed. Thus, the iPhones surviving that test are quite impressive. Probably, that is one thing you should not do to your iPhones if you want to make them last longer.
iPhone 13 Review: Should you buy it?
If you are still hesitant to buy your new iPhone 13, you are not alone. After all, the expensive phone can be a hard decision for many of us.
But, in fairness, the new iPhone models have a lot to offer compared to the past devices. In general, the new iPhone 13 series have bumpier cameras, and bigger but longer battery life than the iPhone 12. Based on other reviews, this phone is worth your money.
