According to Digitimes that quots industry sources, Apple is planning to adopt a “curved cover glass” for its next generation iPhone.
“Cover glass makers are reluctant to commit investment to the purchase of glass cutting equipment due to the high capital involved, said the sources.”
According to those same sources, Apple has purchased 200-300 glass cutting machines to be used by glass makers.
However, we still have no idea what type of design a “curved cover glass” iPhone would adopt. And Apple hasn’t set any deadline for the mass production of the device.
