Sapphire Glass will be used on iWatch but not iPhone 6 tips Supply chain
Apple is getting set up with a new plant to make tough sapphire glass in Arizona with a partner. Rumors have long held that the glass created at the plant would be used for the next generation iPhone 6. A new rumor with its source in the supply chain is now making the rounds reports MacRumors.
The source of the rumor comes from the Asian Supply Chain. The rumor claims that the first device to get the sapphire glass that Apple is working on will be the long rumored iWatch. The sapphire glass is going to be highly scratch resistant.
The supply chain sources claim the reason the sapphire glass will be used in the iWatch, but not the next iPhone is one of cost. The supply chain sources say that fitting the sapphire glass screen to the next iPhone would make the price of the phone skyrocket.
The source also claimed that there were iPhones in testing right now at Apple that have sapphire glass, but the glass isn’t expected to make to the production version. The sources claim that the iWatch with its rumored 2-inch screen will get the sapphire glass. The much smaller screen on that smartwatch should mean lower costs.
The iWatch probably needs the sapphire glass worse than the next iPhone would. Watches worn on the wrist are much more likely to scratch than a phone that can be kept in a case or pocket. The sapphire glass is expected to hit the iPhone in the future, Apple has enough equipment to produce an estimated 200 million 5-inch sapphire displays each year.
