    Default Gorilla glass 2

    Does the iPhone five have gorilla glass 2 or does it still using gorilla glass 1? If you can, give me a source to verify your answer. I've been searching and haven't found anything. Thank you very much for the help!

    You know. you should really stop worrying.
    Just wait for the phone to be out.
    I'm sure a hell lot of crazy people will go testing it. Break down the phone and ****.
    What you want to know is whether it's scratch resistant right?
    Just wait. Tons of Apple haters love to do this ****. Just watch them destroy the phone and you'll know the limit of the glass ^^

    Pretty sure the 4s did not have Gorilla Glass, plus it isn't listed as a product that has Gorilla glass on their site.

    If the iPhone 5 has Gorilla Glass 2, wouldn't Apple be advertising this? I really hope it does, however I don't think I have seen anything about it from them. Thoughts?

    iPhones use Gorilla Glass. Apple has confirmed this. Don't know about GG2 on 5, though.

    Talked with an Apple rep. earlier today and he said that IPhone doesn't come with Gorilla Glass; they supposedly use a product built in house.

    This has certainly not been true in the past, many articles about Jobs working with Corning; this article recently out that confirmed in prior phones and speculates for the 5:
    Apple acknowledges use of Corning Gorilla Glass on iPhone, means Gorilla Glass 2 likely for iPhone 5 | 9to5Mac

    According to the International Business Times, which does a report on companies whose stocks rose or fell with the announcement of the new iPhone 5, reported that Corning, which makes Gorilla Glass 2, supplies the iPhone 5 with Gorilla Glass 2. Previous versions of the iPhone used GG1, the 5 uses GG2. There are also tons of Apple specific blogs that will verify this if you simply google it.

    Apple doesn't build products in house. They design products and use other manufacturers to produce the final product. Their time is best spent designing and innovating, not coming up with manufacturing products. Whichever Apple rep told you this was wrong.

    Yeah, some guy in a blue polo shirt is real authoritative. As opposed to:
    Wikipedia
    CNNMoney & Fortune
    9to5Mac
    Cult of Mac
    David Pogue of the New York Times
    According to Walter Isaacson, Steve Jobs's biographer, it was Jobs who told Corning's CEO to make Gorilla Glass; it was made for iPhone before anything else.

    Thanks, found it:
    Corning's Gorilla Glass 2 is in every iPhone 5 as well as in many other mobile products and computers because it's durable and well-designed. Apple's late Chairman, Steve Jobs, worked out the supply arrangement with the venerable glass specialist in Corning, N.Y.
