iPhone 6: mass production of new sapphire screens begins

Posted in iPhone News, Rumor by admin. Published August 18th, 2014

iPhone 5s.

Man-made sapphire is already used to cover the fingerprint-sensing home button and camera lens on the iPhone 5S.

Near-unscratchable screens that are expected to be one of the biggest selling points of the iPhone 6 when Apple unveils the latest model in September are to go into large-scale production this month.

iPhone 5S vs iPhone 6 – Is Apple’s upcoming flagship worth the wait?

Is that enough to justify its high-end price? Probably not for everyone, but for those smartphone users that really like Apple products, the price certainly seems justified.
