What is it and did the previous versions have it?
I don't think so. Previous generations (recent) were marketed as gorilla glass.
Think good watch "glass", and no, not on previous models.
The lens now has an extremely scratch resistant cover. Not on previous versions.
it's for the lens of the back camera...and no the previous iPhones didn't use it.
Sapphire is one step below a diamond in terms of hardness. It is much tougher than tempered glass. Basically you have a very scratch resistant lens cover.
Sapphire crystal lens cover
Apple started using Sapphire Crystal to cover the iSight camera lens since iPhone 5s & iPhone 5c and it was not used before. It's very hard and only get scratched by diamond.
It started with the iPhone 5, back in 2012, when the OP started this thread.
The 5s was launched in 2013.
I think you are right as I know that but tried to make sure of that but didn't find it mentioned in technical specs of the iPhone 5
Anyway thanks a lot
