The fate of iPhone’s sapphire screen looks dubious, per DisplayMate report

New iPhones with scratch-resistant sapphire glass seemed like a sure bet just a couple of months ago, but a new analysis suggests that new screen material was always a long shot.

As DisplayMate’s Raymond Soneira wrote, sapphire isn’t just expensive and difficult to manufacture. It also has nearly double the reflectance of glass, making the screen harder to read in bright sunlight. It’s also a brittle substance that’s more prone to shattering than glass, despite its scratch resistance.

Apple’s intended sapphire supplier, GT Advanced Technologies, had at least solved the cost issue. According to MIT Technology Review, the company figured out how to laminate ultra-thin sheets of sapphire over conventional glass to bring costs down. It’s also possible, as Digital Trends has noted, that sapphire’s scratch resistance would have translated to better shatter protection, due to fewer nicks and scuffs to weaken displays over time.

Not that it matters anymore. Earlier this month, Apple and GT Advanced parted ways after GT failed to meet production milestones. GT has filed for bankruptcy and is looking to sell off the sapphire furnaces at its Arizona facility.
