Analyst: All 5.5-Inch iPhones 6s and Some 4.7-Inch iPhone 6s Will Get Sapphire Cover Screens

Analyst Matt Margolis has learned that all 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models will get sapphire cover screens but only some 4.7-inch iPhone 6 models will come with sapphire. Margolis made the claims in an investor note seen by 9to5Mac.

According to sources close to Foxconn’s manufacturing operations the iPhone 6 will come built with sapphire cover screens in both sizes. These sources have also indicated that the 4.7” Phone 6 is being assembled in two varieties, a sapphire cover screen version and a version featuring Gorilla Glass. At this point I do not know the approximate mix between the two cover screen options on the 4.7” iPhone 6. My latest check on the 5.5” iPhone 6 indicates that all units of the device are expected to come protected by a sapphire cover screen at this point …

Margolis expects both the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 to be unveiled in September; however, the larger model is said to launch in October. A new report claims that Apple will also unveil the iWatch at its September 9th event.

Title of post can be a bit misleading. 6 or 6s model? Or possessive as in 6's. or 6s as in plural?

Thats not going to happen. No way. Customers will be outraged to find out they don't have the sapphire model. Apple would't do that.

Only if it's not advertised what screen they are buying. You get what you pay for. Apple loves making an "inferior" product (not really but makes consumers think so) the same price point as the "best product" but with an added perk. Then you have to contemplate if paying $100 or $50 more is worth it or not and by that time you are already spending hundreds of dollars so $100 or $50 might not seem like a big deal. Before you know it, you just bought the iPhone 6 5.5".
