Apple iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max tragic drop test

A device insurance company conducted a drop test of Apple's iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max to clearly show which device suffered the most damage when dropped. The test was conducted using a DropBot robot and was designed to help determine the damage to the device after a single impact from a height of 6 feet.

The devices were thrown on the sidewalk without a protective case, face down and back, as well as on paved outdoor stairs from the side. Despite the super-ceramic panel protection, both phones suffered severe damage when dropped.

One side of the iPhone 14 Plus shattered when it fell face-up onto the pavement, and a large number of loose glass shards made the phone difficult to handle. The iPhone 14 Pro Max was more severely damaged, with a large bull's-eye crack on one side and through the corner.

When the back was dropped onto the pavement, the iPhone 14 Plus's camera case was damaged, with a bull's-eye crack on one side. The iPhone 14 Pro Max suffered "catastrophic damage" according to the Allstate Protection Plan. The glass back is completely shattered and most of the glass is completely detached from the device. In addition, the camera housing was severely damaged.

When the iPhone 14 Plus was dropped sideways onto a set of paved stairs, it suffered minimal damage just a few corner scratches. The iPhone 14 Pro Max, however, is not doing so well. Cracked back, scratched corners, dented buttons, damaged camera housing.

The Allstate Protection Plan states that despite the damage, each device is still functional. Tests show that the iPhone 14 Pro Max is just as vulnerable to damage as the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro.

The report also highlights that the aluminum casing of the iPhone 14 Plus appears to be more resistant to vandalism than the stainless steel casing of the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
