    This wouldn't hurt make sense, it's not going backwards. Rumours I say

    How is this a rumor? Watch the YouTube video. It's not sapphire, that's a fact.
    I'd call this false advertising by Apple, which is very disappointing.
    Class action lawsuit incoming? Unfortunately I'm not in the U.S. ;)

    I just don't understand why they would take that away. Especially after how good quality it is. Why would I downgrade the new flagship phone without sapphire

    Maybe they used sapphire only on the Plus model? And cheaped out on the regular 7?

    This has been asked and answered by Phil Schiller on Twitter - he confirmed it is sapphire on both the lens and the home button

    Remember these are not Apple factories - they are Foxconn factories. Apple could be being sold a bill of goods "Oh yes, we are using sapphire on the lenses - no worries people!" Who knows?

    yeah i saw vid showing it wasn't sapphire on the 7 unfortunately but at the same time I don't really care since i have it in a case anyways. Not much camera contact. Still they should take away the grade of the materials used while they are still turning profit at least lol.
