One of Apple’s worst-kept secrets ever. Chris Smith on Apple supplier Foxconn:
Foxconn has apparently started producing iPhones with sapphire displays
The Chinese manufacturer expected to make 100 iPhone units with such display cover glass
So, it’s a test run.
Apple already has at least one patent on sapphire glass use in smartphones, and has confirmed during an interview last week that its Arizona plant will produce sapphire glass, without revealing what devices will use it in the future.
Apple has the money to design and build machines to do what other manufacturers cannot.
