iPhone 6 concept

Analyst Sun Chang Xu at ESM-China [via GforGames] believes this year will see several Apple products enjoy the benefits of sapphire glass, namely the iPhone 6 and the iWatch.

But given the difficulties that this material may pose in terms of production and costs Sun Chang Xu expects Cupertino to be able to use it only on a limited number of devices.

She believes sapphire will be reserved only to the higher-end versions of the iPhone and the iWatch.

Sun Chang Xu’s claims confirm previous rumors about the existence of more than one version of the Apple smartwatch and that only high-end iPhone 6 models will use sapphire.

Also regarding the iPhone 6, Sun Chang Xu expects the handset to come with pressure, temperature and humidity sensors.
