The recently unveiled iPhone 12 andiPhone 12 Pro Apple announced the use of Ceramic Shield glass, which protects the display and improves resistance to cracks and impacts. YouTube author JerryRigEverything Zach Nelson ran a series of tests on the iPhone 12 Pro to learn more about Apple's claimed screen longevity.
First of all, Apple announced Ceramic influenceShield for drop and shock resistance, not scratches. Durability tests have shown why Apple announced the impact of glass on drop performance rather than scratch resistance. Nelson uses the Mohs hardness scale in his iPhone 12 Pro scratch test. As a result, it was found that scratches on the iPhone 12 appear at level 6, and starting from level 7, deep scratches are already formed.
Simultaneously, Zach Nelson declares that the frame ofThe stainless steel on the iPhone 12 Pro is “surprisingly hard to scratch,” although it clearly retains fingerprints. The stainless steel blade barely damaged the edges of the iPhone 12 Pro, although the paint still scratches.
The glass back on the iPhone 12 Pro is identical to that found on the iPhone 11 Pro. The sapphire coating on the iPhone 12 Pro's camera sensors is prone to minor Level 6 and 7 scratches.
Nelson also conducted a fire testiPhone 12 Pro by attaching a lighter to a 6.1-inch OLED display. Even after thirty seconds of exposure to the lighter, the display of the iPhone 12 Pro was not damaged. This resilience can also be explained by taking advantage of the Ceramic Shield's benefits.
At the end, the traditionalbending test. The flat-edged iPhone 12 Pro has shown the ability to withstand significant force without visible deformation. Author JerryRigEverything called the iPhone case a "rigid cell phone shell."
