CNET put both the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro through a series of drops to see if they would survive. Turns out, they’re a lot tougher than CNET thought.
What will it take to crack the glass on the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro? That’s the question I’m asking myself after putting these phones through eight different drop tests, each time onto hard concrete.
