iPhone 6 larger model 'to feature Sapphire Glass display'

By
Apple's rumoured 5.5-inch iPhone 6 is said to include an extra-durable Sapphire Glass display.

The next-generation handset is rumoured to be coming in two size options, with the smaller 4.7-inch model expected to feature standard Gorilla Glass 3.

The rumour comes from a source at Apple's Taiwanese supply chain, who also claims that the long-rumoured iWatch will feature a Sapphire screen, G4Games reports.

Using Sapphire materials for the larger iPhone and iWatch makes sense, given that the former has a greater surface area to scratch and the wrist device is likely to suffer everyday wear and tear.

Earlier this week, serial leaker Sonny Dickson released an image of what are thought to be dummy models of both iPhone 6 devices.

The iPhone 6 and the iWatch have been tipped for release in October.
