Both the new iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max boast a new protective glass coating called Ceramic Shield, which promises up to four-times better drop resistance than previous models, improved optical performance, as well as scratch resistance. Even though this material may be strong, can it withstand a big drop? Filip Koroy of Everything Apple Pro decides to find out and the results are surprising to say the least. Read more to see the test and for additional information.
As you can see, even Ceramic Shield is prone to shattering if the iPhone is dropped from high enough onto concrete, although the Pro Max fared much better than the standard Pro. In other words, it would be wise to use even a minimalist bumper case on your new device, mainly to protect the weak points (edges) from absorbing all of the impact.
