The iPhone 14 Pro Max drop test runs as well as you might expect

Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro Max didn’t come out unscathed in a recent drop test against Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra and could make new owners of Apple’s flagship phones buy a case.

Here is the main caveat. YouTuber PhoneBuff’s new iPhone 14 Pro Max vs Galaxy S22 Ultra Fall Test (opens in a new tab) was sponsored by – you guessed it – Casetify. A result where no phone survives is obviously in the best interest of the case manufacturer. That said, we’ve seen drop tests of previous iPhones that use similar types of drop devices, ground distance, and test battery. The results we saw were not surprising, but they also remind us well that these are metal devices wrapped in glass – reinforced with glass, but still with glass.
