All signs point to yet another change to the display screen from Apple.
Many media sources, including the International Business Times, have been speculating on this new glass replacement, known as “Sapphire Glass”, a highly protective new substance that has Gorilla Glass shaking in their boots. It is essentially sapphire-infused glass. According to IBT, there’s great reason to suspect this new display glass:
“Earlier this year, Apple announced plans to build a sapphire manufacturing facility in Mesa, Arizona, and it filed a sapphire-related patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO); these reports fueled rumors that the iPhone 6, expected this fall, would have a sapphire screen.”
