The iPhone 6 on release date is said to pave the way for the increased use of robust materials namely Liquidmetal, sapphire and graphene, which is a form of carbon.
Liquidmetal and sapphire are already part of the iOS supply chain - the former as SIM holder and the latter as coating for the iPhone camera lens and the Touch ID fingerprint reader. If the rumours prove true, graphene will likely debut with the iPhone 6 or the next model after it.
But what exactly are the benefits that the remarkable material will deliver to mobile device users, especially to iPhone fans? Business Insider described the coming of graphene on tech devices as attached with exciting possibilities for its strength and flexibility. The material is also highly conductive, the tech site added.
