Ceramic Shield kicks off new era in phone durability

Other than (perhaps) imaging improvements, the thing that grabbed my attention in Apple's recent online launch shindig was the use of a new 'Ceramic Shield' glass for its 2020 iPhones. This was developed in conjunction with Corning (makers of the Gorilla Glass range) and apparently has four times greater resistance to damage from drops. That's quite a mark up on what has gone before and, if true, heralds a new era in phone durability. Imagine Ceramic Shield on all phones, front and back (if needed) and at all price points - we'd see far fewer people walking around with cracked screens, a sight that always makes me shudder!
