Apple could include sapphire crystal screen on the iPhone 6S
It seems that Apple will not give up incorporating sapphire crystal screens in future iPhones, iPads or Apple Watches despite the failure of their official supplier of this type of material GT Technologies.In fact, the Cupertino company have contracted with Foxconn to manufacture panels with this type of item and incorporate them in future iPhone 6S .
This information was published by the media The China Economic Weekly and has confirmed that Apple will install a new plant in Zhengzhou.Apparently, this would be the plot which currently occur the iPhone 6 and in the future would become the place of manufacture of sapphire screens of the iPhone 6S.The news was especially well received by investors and analysts who have made shooting the value of the company. And, we must remember that the sapphire crystal not only be used in panels of future smartphones from Apple but it also will join iPads.In addition, the Apple Watch will also get this protection on its screen.
It is said that this material is the second strongest in the world after diamonds. The reason the company waited so long to get these screens arrived to smartphones would be a problem of production and economic viability. Apparently, those of Cupertino would like have ensured that there was a sufficient amount of this material to meet demand.And we must not forget why the iPhone 6 have no current sapphire crystal. As Apple wanted to produce this material but realized that the process was not quite profitable for the company.That was when they went to GT Advanced Technologies ,trying to make this corporation will sell the item.The company could not meet all the demand and requesting the brand apple to meet the demand little by little which was complicating the situation.
The company failed to comply with the deadlines established nor the quality of the product ordered.The pressure suffered by Apple and the inability of GT to get to meet demand, coupled with the fine imposed by the Cupertino by the secret revealed to the public by the way, led the company into bankruptcy .
The Wall Street Journal said at the time, the company imposed a bitten Apple production levels and quality were not consistent to what they were willing to pay. For its part, the manufacturer saw an opportunity they could not pass, but that eventually led it to bankruptcy .
And, leaving aside the fact that sapphire crystal screens are incorporated into luxury watches as it is quite difficult to produce and integrate large scale . Anyway, we still have to wait a few months to see if the iPhone 6S end up incorporating this material or not.
