Apple to Introduce a Curved Glass iPhone 5?

Apple will reportedly adopt a curved cover glass for its next generation iPhone, according to DigiTimes sources.

Cover glass makers are reluctant to commit investment to the purchase of glass cutting equipment due to the high capital involved, said the sources. However, in order to push forward the production of curved glass, Apple reportedly has purchased 200-300 glass cutting machines to be used by glass makers, said the sources.

The glass slicing machines are currently being stored at associated assembly plants and will be brought online once yield rates for the production of curved glass reaches a satisfactory level, the sources revealed.

The site reports that there is currently no timetable set for mass production of the iPhone 5 as work on the cover glass, glass cutting, lamination, and touch sensor is still being worked on to achieve higher yield rates.
