At the autumn presentation of the new iPhone, Apple announced the exceptional strength of tempered glass used in new products. According to top managers, the design of smartphones now uses a special textured glass, which better resists falls. How reliable are these claims?
Check this out by the author of the famous YouTube channel EverythingApplePro. The enthusiast decided to perform a series of drop tests to find out how reliable the glass panels of the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max really are.
The first test is a fall from one meter.
The blogger performed a series of throws on the concrete floor – the front and back panels down, as well as a fall on the side. In all cases, smartphones have remained safe and sound. Moreover – on stainless steel there were not even scratches or dents.
The second test is a drop from a height of human growth (1.7-1.8 m)
Surprisingly, even with such a harsh test, smartphones did not receive any noticeable damage. The enthusiast made a similar series of throws – the glass on both sides retained its integrity. At the same time, the components themselves were also not affected – the display and camera devices worked properly.
The third test is a fall from three meters
Only after a few throws, the blogger managed to break the back and front glass of the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Interestingly, the smartphone matrix and Face ID facial recognition system, after a series of tests, remained operational.
According to the author of the experiment, the final result exceeded all his expectations. Apparently, Apple did not dissemble, speaking about the most durable glass in the world among all smartphones. The devices showed exceptional resistance to damage, despite the absence of any protective devices.
