Do you remember the iPhone 5 in 2012? A lot of people have seen the edges of the smartphone get damaged. The scenario is repeating itself this year with the iPhone 12.
Photos from an Apple Store in China already show marked edges on an iPhone 12 on display. And again, the phone has been available since Friday. Suffice to say that the situation is likely to worsen over time on all models presented. As a reminder, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini are made of aluminum. In comparison, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are made of stainless steel.
The iPhone 5 had suffered and Apple had made efforts with the iPhone 5s, released a year later. Are we to understand that we will have to wait for the iPhone 13 in 2021 to have the best in terms of resistance?
In parallel, Max Weinbach shared a photo of his iPhone 12 Pro. You can see that the glass of the photo block is damaged, but the blogger assures that he did not drop his phone. “He broke on his own. This is madness ", he said in a tweet. “Any fall would have had an impact point. Obviously there isn't. If it was a fall to the ground, the crack wouldn't have been like this ", he adds.
What in the actual fuck. My phone didn’t fall, drop, or do anything anywhere. I literally placed it on a table face down and when I look at it, the glass is broken.
I’m fine admitting when I break something, this WAS NOT me. pic.twitter.com/b6alnPpxVs
