Sapphire has been the latest loaded buzzword floating around the world of Apple. The company could soon fire up a new facility in Arizona to churn out sapphire screens for...something. Maybe the displays of an upcoming iPhone 6? Maybe a new iWatch, or perhaps just more Touch ID screens?
The notion of using sapphire glass to give the next-generation iPhone a virtually unscratchable screen seems to be generating the most excitement -- imagine, at last, an end to all those shattered glass iPhone faces!
