Sapphire Glass is used in many watches, and it is considered to be one of the most scratch resistant and toughest glass available, bit it would appear that Apple has more plans than just adding extra protection to their smartphone displays.
According to Seeking Alpha analyst Matt Margolis, Apple also has plans to include some sort of solar charging in the sapphire glass display of the iPhone 6, which would help extend the handsets battery life.
Apple are expected to launch the iPhone 6 in September, along with their new Apple iWatch, and the handset is rumored to feature a 4.8 inch display.
We can expect the iPhone 6 to include the new Apple TouchID fingerprint sensor that was launched in the iPhone 5S, this is also rumored to be included in the next generation of Apple iPads.
As soon as we get some more information on the new iPhone 6, including some photos of the handset and also confirmation of the devices specifications, we will let you guys know.
