iPhone 12 Ceramic Shield torture test finds similar scratch resistance as previous iPhones

Apple has teamed up with Corning Glass to create a new optically transparent material, called Ceramic Shield, to protect the iPhone 12 display. According to Apple, the new Ceramic Shield front cover provides "the biggest jump in durability ever on the iPhone" and is "tougher than any smartphone glass." But as a new torture test shows, the actual scratch resistance of the new iPhone 12 displays is comparable to the previous iPhone smartphones.
