Apple Making The Strongest Display Yet

Almost every iPhone user has faced the reality of dropping their phone and finding that it was scratched or cracked. Even though Gorilla Glass is meant to be one of the strongest materials in the world, million of people have found their screens broken. Apple is set to get rid of that problem forever, though, as they make the switch to sapphire glass for the iPhone 6 screen, reports Apple Balla.

Pure sapphire has been rated at a 9 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, which makes it one of the strongest glass materials known to man. The screens for these phones won’t be pure sapphire, but it will be the strongest material that is currently used in a mobile device.

In recent tests on screens like that which will be used in the iPhone 6, virtually every harmful object you can come across has been used to attempt to scratch or break the glass. Even in tests involving knives, rocks, or simply dropping the phone, it has held up and not cracked or scratched. One Youtube user even attempted to scratch the screen with sandpaper and was unable to harm it.

Apple has reportedly been producing millions of sapphire glass screens this year, making the release of the updated iPhone a sure bet, although we don’t yet know what their finished product will look like. The one thing that is for sure is that the competition is going to have to work hard to keep up with this kind of durability.

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.
