Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are advertised as having a sapphire glass but now it would appear that the handsets may not actually have true sapphire glass.
YouTuber JerryRigEverything has put the so called sapphire glass on the camera lens on the iPhone 7 through its paces, he also tested the sapphire glass on a watch and also tested a sapphire.
As we can see from the video, Apple’s camera lens is much more prone to scratching than the sapphire glass on the Tissot watch.
It would appear that Apple’s glass is not solid sapphire, but instead it is a layer of sapphire on top of normal glass.
This means that it could be easier to accidentally scratch your iPhone camera lens than if it was solid sapphire glass.
