    At the 87:37 point of the keynote, Schiller says that it's the "strongest glass in the industry" and that it's made by a dual ion exchange process. That's all that was said. I don't believe that it's sapphire glass because Apple would have trumpeted that fact. It's possibly a next gen gorilla glass, but Apple didn't really tell us.

    If Schiller had used the name "Gorilla Glass", Apple would have to pay brand royalties. If they use the GG product, but never call it by name, they save big bucks.

    This sounds like utter nonsense to me. Using a brand is what makes you have to pay royalties. Mentioning it or not mentioning it doesn't change this fact.

    Exactly. Apple does not include this info in their keynotes and press releases. It has nothing to do with having to pay royalties for naming names. They don't state who makes their parts.

    I you google the "dual ion exchange process glass" you will find patents to inventors that are employed by Corning. So pretty sure they are talking about Gorilla Glass 4.

    Most manufacturers won't state all the parts they use from where because they want you to be under the impression they made the entire device. And most people believe the entire device is made by one company. Truth be told phones are made with parts from many different companies.
