Apple alludes to Gorilla Glass use in iPhone


Posted by: Brett

With Apple’s new job creation and statistics page, they’ve posted the amount and types of jobs they’ve created, such as iOS developers, full-time employees, and their total amount of employed workers.Apple has never really said what type of displays it uses in it’s mobile devices, aside from the “Retina display” nickname for the iPhone display. Speculation has been occuring on what displays they use, but Gorilla Glass was never confirmed nor denied as the moniker. On the new page, Apple has hinted at Gorilla Glass being used on their devices. Corning hasn’t said much either, excluding the iPhone from their listed of devices utilizing the display technology. Here’s what Apple said under “U.S. Jobs Supported by Apple”;

For example, this figure also includes workers in Texas who manufacture processors for iOS products, Corning employees in Kentucky and New York who create the majority of the glass for iPhone, and FedEx and UPS employees. 

The page doesn’t mention the iPad as using the display type, but it’s very possible it does. Most Android device manufacturers have included Gorilla Glass, and now Gorilla Glass 2, in their devices for awhile now, although Apple is not very specific when it comes to explaining the hardware of the devices.
