Sapphire has been integrated into Touch ID

A patent filing indicates that Apple is very serious about using Sapphire in their upcoming electronic products.

According to Apple Balla, the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) published a patent filing on Tuesday, stating a process which can be executed by Apple in order to build a consumer electronics product, using Sapphire- the second largest stone in the world after diamond.

Apple has applied sapphire into its iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S. In case of iPhone 5, sapphire was used for the purpose of protecting the rear lens. However, sapphire has been integrated into Touch ID-the fingerprint sensor of the recently unveiled iPhone 5S.

The patent application gives a description about Apple’s systematic approach of preparing sapphire which might be used for more efficient, effective and relatively less expensive electronic products. The valuable material can also be integrated with glass.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
