After owning the first iPhone 14 through the pre-order program, famous YouTube channels such as JerryRigEverything, HaerteTest and TechRax have conducted side tests of these new iPhone models. Most of them show that the glass material on the iPhone 14 has the same durability as last year's iPhone 13.

YouTuber JerryRigEverything does a new iPhone scratch test every year using the Mohs hardness scale, and with the iPhone 14, the results are as we expected.

Apple is still using the same ceramic material on the iPhone 12 - 13 and the faint scratches have started to appear at level 6.

More noticeable scratches have appeared with level 7 and this is also the result we see on the ‌iPhone 12 or iPhone 13 before that. So, this year's iPhone 14 has no improvement in screen durability.

The aluminum frame is inherently a scratch-prone material, and the sapphire crystal camera lens suffers a grade of 6, which is a bit of a surprise since sapphire glass is typically rated at 9 on the hardness scale. Mohs.

Other YouTubers tested the iPhone 14's glass for durability with hammers, knives, screwdrivers, and other items to test the durability, but it's difficult to glean useful information from tests like these.

Still, it's impressive how much damage ‌iPhone 14‌ models can endure before a scratch appears under various real-world conditions, even placing the device the wrong way on a tool - Objects can also cause a scratch in one situation that it might not in another.

When announcing the new iPhone series, Apple didn't make specific statements about the durability of the ‌iPhone 14‌ and iPhone 14 Pro models, which suggests that these devices still use the same components as the iPhone 13 generation.
