The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Apple is planning to use sapphire screens in the more-expensive models of their upcoming 4.7-inch/5.5-inch iPhones and iWatch devices. The sapphire displays are currently produced by GT Advanced Technologies following Apple’s $700 million deal with the Arizona-based company.
According to the report:
[su_quote]The first sapphire display screens for the forthcoming larger iPhone and smartwatch are expected to roll off production lines this month at a Mesa, Ariz., facility that Apple opened with materials manufacturer GT Advanced Technologies Inc..
Apple is considering using sapphire screens in more-expensive models of the two new, larger iPhones it plans to debut this fall, if it can get enough of the material.. Some analysts expect Apple to charge more for the phones than previous new models, because of increased component costs.[/su_quote]
