Apple confirms Corning is making the glass on iPhones
If you know a bit about Apple or if you’ve read some of the recent Steve Jobs biographies, you probably thought that it’s a well known fact that the iPhone uses Corning Glass for its tough screen. Surprisingly, Apple never confirmed this officially, and even omitted the New York-based company from its 2011 list of suppliers.

Now, though, Cupertino has finally verified that it’s indeed using the company’s rugged glass technology in a statement about the over half a million jobs Apple has created.

"Corning employees in Kentucky and New York who create the majority of the glass for iPhone," Apple credits the company in its Job Creation report.

So there you have it - no surprises in the glass used in the iPhone and one more confirmation of Apple's commitment to creating US jobs.
