Here, I'll find out for you ............................ YES, it is Gorilla Glass after all! Just did my little experiment with the hammer..... he he he............ Seriously, I was hoping for Gorilla Glass 3, but I guess we'll have to settle for 2 for now.I have always wondered , has anyone ever really found out what kind of screen the iphone 5s has , gorilla glass or what ?
Does Apple advertise make of camera sensor?I'm actually surprised that they do not mention the manufacturer. I would think that they would make it a "feature" of the phone.
Well new iPhones come with an oleophobic coating that gives it the smoothness. But they wear out with time. It probably wore out on your 5 and 4S.The 5S feels much smoother than the 4S and 5. I picked it up yesterday and I must say it feels very different; though I suspect it's only because it's new.
You are correct they do not advertise the names but tear downs make it easy to see who these companies are. Unfortunately there is no way to tell about the glass.Does Apple advertise make of camera sensor?
Of LTE modem make?
Of the RAM chip maker?
It would be uncharacteristic of them to with the glass.
IPhone uses Gorilla Glass or some very close derivative. Apple worked very closely with Corning for expanding their manufacturing to deploy their original Gorilla Glass on one of the earlier iPhone releases (3GS/4 I don't recall exact). They use some evolution of that now. Whether its from Corning(likely) or some other supplier(also probable), it will have comparable performance.
This. I don't care that much about scratch or scuff and anything as long as I can keep using it. But when the screen shatters and the LCD screen breaks, it's pretty much dead until you get it repaired. Hopefully the rumored sapphire instead of glass will do the trick.It would be a feature if is shatter-proof.

IS IT TRUE THAT GORILLA GLASS WAS ORIGINALLY DEVELOPED IN THE 1960S?
No. That has been a popular myth, which apparently resulted from a misunderstanding of the facts. It’s true that Corning experimented with chemically strengthened glass in 1960, as part of an initiative called “Project Muscle.” In 1961, Corning developed a glass composition it promoted under the Chemcor® brand, which featured state-of-the-art strength and durability. Chemcor glass was incorporated into tableware, ophthalmic products, and applications for the automotive, aviation, and pharmaceutical industries. When Corning began developing a tough new cover glass for electronic devices in 2006, Corning scientists, of course, drew upon the company’s prior expertise with strengthened glass. However, Corning Gorilla Glass is a different product and glass composition than Chemcor. We implemented significant compositional as well as other changes to achieve superior product characteristics including outstanding damage resistance, while making the glass compatible with Corning’s proprietary fusion-draw manufacturing process. Corning’s fusion-draw process produces exceptionally thin glass with unparalleled surface quality. The result is a tough and damage-resistant glass that is ideal for today’s sleekest electronic devices and most sophisticated touch technology.
While not shatter proof it is more resistant than untreated glass. It's not unscratchable for that matter. Just more scratch resistant.This. I don't care that much about scratch or scuff and anything as long as I can keep using it.
Even sapphire is just shatter resistant. It's not an unbreakable super material. It's hard but brittle.Hopefully the rumored sapphire instead of glass will do the trick.
Based on their website it sounds like they specialize in coatings, not the actual glass.Apple supposedly dropped Gorilla Glass with the iPhone 3GS and switched to a different manufacture (They might be an unnamed vendor). Lens Technology International currently produces the aluminosilicate glass for all iPhone products.
They stopped officially using "Gorilla Glass" after the 3GS though Corning may still be one of the many vendors producing "aluminosilicate glass".They actually used Gorilla glass (or rather, chemically-strengthened glass) in all iPhone models since the original? I thought it started with the iPhone 4 when Apple started advertising "aluminosilicate glass that is chemically strengthened to be 20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic" and "glass is ultradurable and more scratch resistant than ever. It's also recyclable."
If Gorilla glass was used in original iPhone through 3GS, why would Apple all of sudden advertise "aluminosilicate glass that is chemically strengthened to be 20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic" starting with the iPhone 4?They stopped officially using "Gorilla Glass" after the 3GS though Corning may still be one of the many vendors producing "aluminosilicate glass".
