Moor Insights & Strategy高级分析师马克·n·维纳(Mark N. Vena)告诉TechNewsWorld:“对一些人来说，陶瓷盾牌可能听起来微不足道，但当你能将智能手机的跌落测试性能提高4倍时，这就不是一个微不足道的成就。”
原文：Apple refreshed its iPhone product line Tuesday, introducing four new models, as well as a downsized version of its HomePod smart speaker.
All of the new iPhones are built around Apple's blazing fast A14 Bionic chip, support all flavors of 5G wireless connectivity, and are protected by a Ceramic Shield that protects the phone from damage after a fall four times better than in previous models.
"The Ceramic Shield may sound trivial to some people, but when you can improve the drop test performance of a smartphone by 4x, that's not a trivial achievement," Mark N. Vena, a senior analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy, told TechNewsWorld.
The big news from the event, though, was Apple finally making iPhones that support 5G.
"This marks the start of a new era for iPhone," Apple CEO Tim Cook said at a virtual online event announcing the new products.
Bringing 5G to the iPhone is a huge moment for the product, he noted. "5G will bring a new level of performance for downloads and uploads, higher quality video streaming, more responsive gaming, real time interactivity and so much more," Cook proclaimed.
"5G networks are more advanced with lower latency and less network congestion so you can get higher network speeds even in densely populated areas," he continued.
"And 5G even helps protect your privacy and security," Cook explained, "since you won't need to connect to unknown, unsecured public Wi-Fi hot spots as often."
