Apple has expended over half a billion in the development of sapphire crystal display for its new release, the iPhone6 that won’t bear a scratch even when brushed against concrete surface. Sapphire glass is 2.5 times harder than Corning Gorilla Glass. The sapphire glass can break concrete without leaving any scratch on it. The Sapphire crystal has been used in iPhone 5s but just on the lens of the rear camera and Touch ID button
Apple has paid GT Advanced Technologies $578 to enhance the production of its next gen iPhone series. A scratch resistance display would give the iPhone 6 a competitive advantage over its contemporaries. But this could set the price of iPhone 6 very high.
With the launch of iPhone 5, the profit margin declined as the new specs of the phone added to the expense, yet the price of the iPhone 5 remained unchanged. But with iPhone 6 analyst are expecting host of new features which will increase the bills of material cost too.
The phone is all set to release in the mid of the 2014.The fans of iPhone weren’t happy to see the changes in the iPhone 5c and 5s as they expect a better hardware upgrade. The expected iPhone 6 will come in the middle of 2014 and will come with larger screen and slick wraparound screen.
Forbes updated that iPhone 6 may sport a manmade sapphire crystal display which will make the display scratch resistant, but will eventually increase the expense. Bloomberg stated that the device will feature a curved screen which will enhance the surface area of the phone without adding much the overall breadth of the gadget.
While Apple is resistant to join the phablet segment like its rival, the company has released the gigantic untapped potential in the next gen iPhone
Apple iPhone 6 release is just round the corner. Industry experts believes that with the dismissal of Apple iPhone 5S/ 5C, the tech giant will bring some revolutionary features in Apple iPhone 6.
According to highly placed sources at Apple, “iPhone 6 will come with longer battery life, improved camera, wraparound display and sapphire screen.”
It has also been rumored that iPhone 6 will have a 3D sensor technology which will make user interaction a breeze. Apple has recently obtained Prime Sense technology from an Israeli company. The company is the expert in designing sensors that help in user interaction.
Another noteworthy acquisition, which Apple has done, is of company responsible for Xbox Kinect sensor. The acquisition deal cost apple $350 million. It is predicted that since now Apple has hold over such technology, the 3D sensor will be included in the 6th generation iPhone.
According to Susquehanna analyst, Chris Caso, “We think Apple could get away with a $50 to $100 premium for a larger screen size iPhone 6. We think such a move could avoid the margin erosion that occurred when the iPhone 5 was launched.”
Apple iPhone 6 needs to up its ante if it is willing to beat competition by HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4. Both the phones have a bigger screen size and are endowed with brilliant features. Indeed, Apple phones are packed with some extraordinary features but a big screen won’t hurt either.

Yep, crazy as it may sound, there are actually some pretty good reasons to buy the iPhone 5C rather than the iPhone 6! Apple is expected to reveal the iPhone 5C and the iPhone 5S in a few hours and also to release the completed version of the new iOS 7.
The first reason is that the iPhone 5C will be released sooner than the iPhone 6.

And that neatly brings me to the second point, which is price. The iPhone5C will be the first iPhone made out of plastic and is aimed at the lower end of the smartphone market but will still have the new iOS 7. The iPhone 6 on the other hand will be the flagship iPhone and will be sold at a premium. A big plus for the younger crowd is that the iPhone 5C will not only be cheaper and run iOS 7 but it will also come in a variety of colours, something that no Apple iPhone has offered as of yet! … Read the rest

Certain reports also suggest that Apple is taking orders for the components of the iPhone’s units, production of which might start in August.

Apple seems not-too-snug in its seat with Samsung and BlackBerry on the prowl. This time, we have reason to believes that iPhone 6 and iPad 5 could see a slew of the latest features that could give all Apple counterparts a run for money.
Apple could take on high-laced technology in the form of 1080 p HD display coupled with laser-based perception tech like it never used before. The latter could double as a desktop keyboard too! A snippet from Patently Apple reveals that the next installments of the Apple outings could come with a control panel 115 that could run on sensory light waves. It says, “Remember, this could also apply to Apple’s iPhone as well which would indicate that there would be some kind of associated smart cover or built-in stand so that the projected keyboard could function properly onto a surface.”
However, for now we could only keep fingers crossed till these features are actually seen on the Apple models in the future.
Apple seems to have packed in its strategy very tight this year, snaps of what possibly could be parts that would go into the iPhone 5S, and iPhone 6 have surfaced on a website of late.

The site in picture is nowhereelse.fr and the pictures reveal that the parts are apparently similar to the existing modules in use on the current iPhone model. Amidst launch rumors galore, the website only seal our belief that Apple is ready to get back with a punch this 2013.
