iphone家族已经在苹果的多代产品中使用蓝宝石水晶玻璃作为它们的原料。装有蓝宝石水晶玻璃的后置式摄像镜头并且在iphone5s中，镶嵌着蓝宝石水晶玻璃的the Touch ID home按钮都使得它们更加稳固。Iphone6，正如之前说的那样，整个手机表面都会使用蓝宝石水晶玻璃而被人们取笑了不止一次。
The iPhone family has used Sapphire Glass for components for several generations. Both the back-facing camera lens and, in the iPhone 5s, the Touch ID home button work with Sapphire Glass to keep them tough. The iPhone 6, as it’s assumed to be called, has been teased more than once to be working with a full Sapphire Glass front panel.
This week the folks at analyst group Trendforce have uncovered some supply chain clues which lead us to believe there’ll be a slightly more traditional front panel on the iPhone 6. They suggest that their contacts in the manufacturing industry show a lack of "demands for smartphone cover glass."
Oddly they also suggest that "the sapphire glass version iPhone 6 will be issued in limited volumes this year," noting that these lower volumes would be because "sapphire ingot manufacturers yield rates were lower than forecasts and [because of] issues involved in sapphire glass processing."
