Nearly indestructible ‘iPhone 6′ screen revealed (Video)
If the latest Apple iPhone rumor is correct, the next generation of the iPhone — unofficially dubbed the iPhone 6 — could have a nearly indestructible screen.
This is according to a new YouTube video from Marques Brownlee who tested out the new sapphire crystal that is supposedly going to protect the front of the new iPhones.
Apple’s current iPhone 5S uses Corning Gorilla Glass for its front screen, but uses sapphire to protect the camera, as well as for its Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
The panel tested in the YouTube video is said to be that of a 4.7-inch screen — suggesting that perhaps the sapphire screen would be available on a smaller iPhone, not just the larger 5.5-inch one, as previous rumors suggested.
