iPhone 5 to come with a curved-glass screen?
Cover glass makers, on their part, have been reluctant to purchase the expensive technology. But even after Apple’s purchase, the machines remain stored and unused at associated plants as yield rates for production of the curved glass screens haven’t reached a satisfactory level. If true, it seems like there are still many unresolved issues for the next-generation iPhone, iterating once again a later release date, possibly in September. Currently, we can think of the T-Mobile G2x and the upcoming HTC Sensation as being one of the few high-end models with slightly curved screens, but Apple could well surprise us with something new altogether. What’s your creative guess for the possibly curved screen of the iPhone 5? Sound off in the comments below.

could be curved screens for the new imac. sounds like the machines wont even be up and running for the iPhone 5. imagine the new imac with its super resolution and a panoramic screen. then again could be for the iphone 6, ipod touch 5, ipad 3, or new screens for a redesign of the nano. hell it could be for the classic for all we know(prolly not). then again the machines could sit in a warehouse forever unused like many odf their patents.

I thought it was going to be the iPhone4S, not the iPhone 5?

The 4S is coming out this September. The 5, the one that's actually supposed to be a new device will be released sometime next year and may have this technology.
