Wil dreams of a day when an iPhone’s glass will not break.
What we want is obvious. Glass that won’t break. Or, glass that won’t break so easily when dropped to the ground. That’s the nature of glass. The holy grail in the industry is high quality glass– the kind that meets Apple’s high standards– still breaks. My neighbor is on her second iPhone X. The glass broke. Twice. My neighbor is a hazard to iPhone screens, having dropped and broken every new model for the past five years.
What will Apple do? Gorilla Glass. Again.
Corning to the rescue. Except the rescue was years of iterative improvements to smartphone glass screens. Now Corning has Gorilla Glass 6… Considering all the noise Corning is making about Gorilla Glass 6, only two times better than Gorilla Glass 5 doesn’t seem all that impressive.
