The Ceramic shield automatically tells that the glass built of the iPhone 11 is not at par with what Apple will produce further. In the new phones, scratch chances are way lesser. The 6 and 7 points of the Mohs hardness test were used in the video. On iPhone 11, the 6 and 7 points both left scratches. However, on the 12 model, only 7 points left some scratches.

The new phones are better but still, Apple has a long way to go

The scratch resistance in the new phones is too good that keys, coins, rocks, etc. could not harm the models. However, the Ceramic shield appears only in the front of the phone. This means that the back of the iPhone where the luxury logo situates is still left for harm. The rear glass of the the new 12 model is the same as that of the iPhone 11. The drops from 6 feet did not do anything major to both the devices. However, when the testers dropped them from a 10 feet altitude, the back glass of both the phone suffered major breakage. Apple launched iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro on Friday. Hence, more people will try to conduct various tests to compare them with the previous models. Also, the tests shown above may vary in different tests.
