Apple partner about to begin mass production of sapphire glass
Ever since the introduction of the iPhone 5, Apple has been using the sapphire glass to protect the camera lens on their devices, as well as the fingerprint sensor on the 5s. It is widely believed that the iPhone 6 is about to feature a screen made of the sturdy material, though rumors about mass production issues have suggested that it will either be replaced by a sapphire compound-treated glass, or that sapphire glass will only be reserved for the top-tier (64 GB) model, while the lower ones would bear the well-known Corning Gorilla glass. It seems that Project Cascade may just prove these rumors wrong.

No, the rumor makers are just stupid. There are 2 months left till the iPhone 6 release which means if they're beginning production now it will not be on the iPhone 6. The iNote or whatever can have it, but that would mean it earliest release is December. But even for a minimum of 10 million units it would be very hard to do on time if December is the release because a full 5.5 inch sapphire screen would literally require more sapphire than the rest of the sapphire manufacturers of the world can produce. Likely this is for the smartwatch if anything, but the prototype sapphire screens running around are fueling quite a bit of speculation.

How are these rumors accurate? Apple seriously didn't produce anything till recently I can't believe that for one minute... It takes more than a month a half
