Opinion: sapphire glass will recharge the iPhone 6 38


In the web increasingly emerge evidence that the next generation iPhone will be equipped with a display with a sapphire crystal . Analyst at Seeking Alpha offered his rationale for the use of new material. According to the expert, sapphire crystal will contain miniature solar panel and will provide wireless charging gadget from the sun.

His assumption Matt Margolis is based on several patents describing technology for recharging laptops, smartphones, tablets by solar panels.

Moreover, he reminds readers about recent vacancies open now: Apple engineer looking to create thin-film transistors with experience with solar panels and experts in technological design (probably expert believes that they and will have to work on how to implement solar elements sapphire).

Fellow Seeking Alpha also not disregarded and 578 million deal with the manufacturer GT Advanced Technologies and application Cupertino that about $ 10 billion will be spent in 2014 on the development of new technologies (including advanced lasers, which, again, according to Analytics can be used when placing solar cells “inside” sapphire glass).

But that’s not all. Margolis suggests what Apple has issued an order for 68 million dollars and addressed his company Manz AG, which deals with equipment for coating photosensitive elements. The German side confirmed the order, but does not know the client, so that remains a guess: whether rights expert or make up one’s mind.

If you look at the situation objectively, the prerequisites for equipping gadgets solar panels there. But will it be done at the moment, it is unclear. Moreover, the official confirmation of the fact that the next generation iPhone will get a sapphire crystal, also no. There is only indirect suggestions: Tim Cook has confirmed that the company’s investment in Arizona associated with a sapphire crystal, but no more – why, what and why it will be used (and will), remains unclear.
