When the iPhone 12 series was first officially announced, Apple noted its utilization of a new “Ceramic Shield” technology. Found on the exterior of the iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, the technology reportedly makes the devices four times more durable than previous models. Putting the Ceramic Shield technology to the test, American insurance company, Allstate, put together a drop test for the models out now to really find out the durability of the iPhone 12 series.

Starting off with a face-down drop from six feet up in the air, the iPhone 12 showed small cracks, scuffed corners and edges, along with sharp metal protrusions. While the iPhone 12 Pro showed a fully cracked screen and raised glass from the same height. Moving to a back-down drop from six feet, the iPhone 12 showed just scuffed corners and edges with sharp metal parts, but the Pro model was completely shattered with loose glass and a cracked camera.

The side drop from six feet for both phones showed significantly less damage with just scuffed corners and edges with a sharp metal feel, proving a side drop survivable. It is interesting to see that the iPhone 12 is more durable than the higher-end Pro model despite both utilizing the Ceramic Shield technology.

Watch the drop test for the Apple iPhone 12 and 12 Pro above.
