Apple's iPhone 6 will have a virtually indestructible screen made of sapphire, it has been claimed.
A YouTube videomaker claims to have acquired one of the screens - and has subjected it to a barrage of abuse, from stabbing it with a knife and keys to bending and twisting it.
In the video, the screen emerges totally unscathed - raising hopes is could lead to a far more resilient handset from Apple.
The new glass display is 'paper thin,' Brownlee said in his video.
Brownlee shows his screen measures 4.7 inches diagonally, keeping with rumors that Apple will release two different-sized iPhones this year: A 4.7-inch model and 5.5-inch one.
Reports Apple was experimenting with sapphire displays began last year, yet sources claimed at the time Apple found the technology ‘infeasible.’
