iPhone6 to come with a sapphire coating

As the iPhone6 releases, Apple and Gorilla Glass will have separate ways because it has been stated that the Cupertino-based tech giant is going to move on to sapphire screen-coating for their next line of smartphones. Because of the high reliability and durability, the use of sapphire coating has mostly been associated with high end watches and now it is going to move on to luxury mobile devices as well.

Up till now, the coating was used for the iPhone camera lenses and the iPhone 5s fingerprint sensor but now the iWatch will get to reap the benefits of this coating too. GT Advanced is the name behind Apple’s sapphire coating and it has obviously gained a lot of profits from the deal with Apple. This involves a deal of $500-$700 Million for the first six months and it seems reasonable since coating a phone with sapphire will cost up to four times more than it costs to line a phone with Gorilla Glass which is also a very cheap alternative (costing only $3 per screen). The exact number of the displays GT Advanced will be producing is still not known but we do know one thing that they haven’t produced enough to start a May shipment.

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.
