Ivory tusks. Those poor elephants...

On the bright side, there should be no doubt that Apple uses but the best quality materials.

The iPhone 4S was painted white with a special type of paint on the back of the glass.

The iPhone 5 is made of ceramic glass. (think toilet bowl)

On the back of the glass? It looks like something is behind the glass though not just painted on the back.

There is paint behind the glass... Just like every other iPhone.

Also, that's not a real iPhone pictured.

This is what makes bonskovsky threads great. Still laughing after that answer!

I think the iPhone 5 white part is made out of white glass!


Gorilla Glass only goes so far.

There is paint on the underside of the glass. I don't know what else to say. Believe it or not, that's how it is.

Gorilla glass is strong enough for gorillas and not humans. Gorillas are smarter they still live the leisurely life. They have land disputes like humans but they settle out of court with a couple of friendly fights. They never get married but stay loyal. They actually don't eat bananas in the wild. Gorillas don't wear any clothing but don't appear naked. Lucky gorillas ;gorilla glass is not stupid proof.

Be a good sport. When you ask a silly question, expect silly, hilarious answers.

Actually it is your brain. Apple just prints the color on the box and that's what you believe when you look at it. All iPhones are the same color...a dark Army green and the rest is brain control. They are far advanced in their technology of suggestion. Next version will be no phone at all, just your imagination. Bye bye Sammy. They are going to make your phones appear to be road kill.

If you are so disbelieving of the correct answer, buy a white iPhone and take it apart. An expensive lesson to quell your skepticism, to be sure, but it would end this thread.

Apple is not one of the companies listed as made with Gorilla Glass.

I like the white iPhone because it's not completely white it's actually two tone. Really it's great but it looks better.

And they said Apple didn't innovate.

And it clearly states on that list that not all companies that use it are listed.

Are you sure you are not trolling?

Since when does that mean that Apple is using it? You dope.

Also, who cares about gorilla glass 2 when gorilla glass 3 is already out. Gorilla glass 3 is supposed to have an antimicrobial coating.
