The latest leak comes via Sonny Dickson, a well connected Australian with sources in Apple’s supply chain, and shows that the phone’s sapphire coated cover, a change from the Gorilla Glass used in the previous iPhone, is both bendable and nearly indestructible. A later video from Marques Brownlee, a prominent YouTube blogger, seemed to corroborate Dickson’s scoop.

VR Zone noticed a video popped up that claims to show off the capabilities of the screen that will reportedly be used by Apple's iPhone 6. The video claims the iPhone 6 will feature a 4.7" sapphire display from GT Advanced and that this feature may solve the most notorious problem of the iPhone: the prevalence of broken displays. We'll have to wait for some real-world testing with actual phones but the video is quite promising, the screen seems very bendable and scratch resistant.
