SAPPHIRE GLASS – IPAD AIR REPAIR

Ever wonder what happened to the promised innovation in unbreakable screens in the iPad Air and iPhone industry?  We just found a great article that tells all about sapphire glass and iPhone and iPad screen repairs.

In a nutshell, Apple’s foray into sapphire screens for iPhones was a complete disaster.  They invested in a company called GT Advanced Materials which build (at Apple’s expense) a big new plant in Mesa Arizona to manufacture iPhone screens for use in iPhones and maybe even iPads.  But after a few months of experimenting and testing, the factory just failed on many levels to perform.  Apple did not get the iPhone screens they needed and wanted with the performance properties that justified the switch from Gorilla Glass.  So the whole experiment and partnership failed in a big fat way.

Now Apple seems to be doubling down on the next generation of Gorilla Glass from Corning.  Yea, we think it’s a cheeky name too, but the glass is pretty strong and better than anything else out there that Apple can buy at a reasonable price.  And, Corning seems to be making even more progress making the next Generation Gorilla glass even stronger.  So those iPad Air Screen repair services may hopefully be a thing of the past soon.

Sadly, our screens on our favorite devices don’t seem to be destined for unbreakability any time soon.  But they will get better with time.  And perhaps we will just grow to accept that these things are delicate electronic devices that require our vigilance and protection.  That includes tempered glass screen protectors and other good quality iPhone and iPad screen protection.
