Watch this video. near 4 minutes this guy starts talking about the camera, and claims that Iphone cameras aren't really made of sapphire like Apple claims. the thing is... can someone proof that iPhone cameras are really made of sapphire?

They call it sapphire but it scratches at the same level as glass. Thereby defeating the entire point of using sapphire.

Heres a more detailed look that this same youtuber did, including putting it under an electron microscope
