Tomahawk, WI 09/02/2014 (Basicsmedia) – Saphire Screen looks set to be the epitome of iPhone 6 as Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) event date nears. USA Today is already reporting that iPhone 6 is to receive a makeover with the incorporation of the scratch resistant Saphire stone, for the touch screen.

Saphire is currently in use on iPhone’s home button, fingerprint-scanner and as a cover for the inbuilt camera. With all the positive attributes that Saphire is expected to offer, there are also a number of challenges that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will have to grapple with, raising questions as to whether it will be fitted’ in all iPhones.

Cost continues to be the biggest challenge for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) according to Tim Bajarin an analyst Creative Strategies. There have already been suggestions that Apple may come up with two versions of iPhone 6; one with Saphire glass and the other without.

“One problem with Saphire is it is expensive, it is costly. It will add the equivalent of another $100 to the cost of an iPhone at the price it is today,” said Mr. Bajarin.

Bajarin believes that the second version of the iPhone that is expensive with Saphire glasswill be available as an option to users who will not be deterred by cost.

GT Advanced Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:GTAT) is reportedly producing the Saphire glass at its 1.3 million square facility raising prospects of an iPhone featuring the Saphire glass material. Many companies have benefited a great deal from the epidemic of shattered smartphone screens, creating business that specifically specialize in replacing or repairing damaged screens.

The use of Saphire on iPhone 6 arouses the question as to whether screen repair companies will be immensely affected by Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s latest move.

“This material is very scratch resistant. Itis one of the hardest materials on the planet second to diamonds but the jury is not out on how impact resistant this screens are, and if those are to break we are going to be the company that is going to be there to help fix that as quickly,” said Anthony Martin of iCracked.com.
