Apple iPhone 6 Sapphire screen coating
Sapphire coating is usually used in high-end watches. High-durability and scratch resistance is provided by such type of coating. This is not the first time Apple is using such coating. They have used the sapphire coating for iPhone camera lenses and for the iPhone 5S fingerprint sensor.
The upcoming iWatch will also be having the sapphire coating. The company GT Advanced offers such type of coating. They are going to lock a deal of $500-700 Million for the first six months from Apple. A sapphire coating costs 3-4 times more than that of Gorilla Glass coating.
The answer of your question is, it takes just $3 for a Gorilla Glass coating per screen. The number of sapphire coated displays from GT Advanced are not yet known. It seems for sure that Apple cannot make the shipment of iPhone 6 in May. Instead analysts say that the iPhone 6 will be available in the market in September 2014.
