iPhone 5 rumors: Apple names Corning an iPhone manufacturer

Apple has recently acknowledged that the Gorilla Glass maker is among the manufacturers for the future iPhone.

Gorilla Glass is the most resistant smartphone screen and speculation is rife that Apple’s upcoming products will feature the technology.

Back in 2006, Steve Jobs persuaded CEO Wendell Weeks to produce the first products for the iPhone 2G but neither Apple nor Corning recognized the collaboration.

However, the Cupertino tech giant released its US Jobs report and mentions the following:

“Corning employees in Kentucky and New York who create the majority of the glass for iPhone,..”

As the collaboration between the two companies seems official now, speculation is rife that the iPhone 5 and the iPad 3 will feature Corning Gorilla Glass 2, which was presented at CES 2012.

The product is thinner, lighter and stronger than the current Gorilla Glass by up to 20% and Apple’s future handsets may benefit from the technology.
