    Do people think we will be able to put a screen protector on the new iphone screen which is rumored to have fore touch?

    It's not possible. The force touch tech is under the screen or where the touch sensor is. A screen protector cannot add force touch.

    I think he is asking whether a screen protector would work on a screen that has force touch

    what about the vibration/feedback it gives. Will be interesting maybe it will force everyone to go naked w/o cover. Also if its sapphire It will be harder to scratch

    It may be harder to scratch but easier to crack.

    I doubt that they will make the entire screen from sapphire. It's still too expensive anyways. There is a reason why the Apple Watch Sport (the cheapest one) has no sapphire glass.

    Maybe they will come up with some Corning Gorilla mix with sapphire or sapphire coating.

    I really dont think that a screen protector would effect the touch force.
