Apple’s iPhone 6 screen could be totally resistant to scratches, cracks and other terrible things
Apple’s iPhone 6 is rumored to sport a scratch-free, crack-resistant screen. A recent story from The News Tribe claims that this would likely happen if Apple makes the switch from Gorilla Glass to Sapphire Crystal glass.
The new screen glass could help make Apple’s next iPhone boast a type of indestructible quality, but the rumor itself is highly suspicious.
As the report points out, the switch to Sapphire glass from Gorilla wouldn’t be cheap; it could result in up to an additional $20 per device.
It completely goes against the many rumors that have claimed Apple will offer a cheaper iPhone sometime this year.
We highly doubt that we’ll see the switch happen as soon as the iPhone 6 release, but perhaps it will happen in later versions of Apple’s iPhone.
It would certainly be a comfort to have a phone that isn’t quite as prone to cracks and scratches, especially for power users and perfectionists.
