Apple’s Strongest Screen Yet Is On The Way

Gorilla Glass, the glass currently used in iDevices, has been hailed as some of the strongest panes ever produced. Anyone who has dropped their iPhone without a case knows that it doesn’t mean that it is shatterproof, though. That is part of the reason that Apple is now making the switch to producing their own sapphire glass that will be used in the iPhone 6, reports Apple Balla.

Apple invested $578 million into sapphire in the past few months, pointing to a new release sometime this year according to analysts. The long awaited iPhone 6 just might see a release and have a great new screen to make it the most durable one yet. In a demonstration, an iPhone screen made out of sapphire was presented separate from an actual device housing. It was tested against a pocket knife, keys, and attempts to snap it, none of which had any effect. That is in sharp contrast to the perhaps million broken phones that have been throughout the world after meeting the concrete.

This will give peace of mind to the millions of customers who carry their phones in heavy cases, worried that they are going to drop it and have a $600 paperweight. They are willing to pay up to $100 for a case that will protect it, meaning Apple could even charge more and not worry about losing upgrades or new customers. In addition, however, the new sapphire screens promise to be stronger, clearer, and thinner than Gorilla Glass that is currently used.

We will still have to wait to see something official about what kind of an impact this can have on the design of the iPhone 6. Stay tuned for what is expected to be one of the greatest innovations since they released the original iPhone.
