Corning's Gorilla Glass 2 likely to be used for iPhone 5
Corning previously revealed its Gorilla Glass 2, which is said to be 20% lighter, thinner, and stronger than the current Gorilla Glass at CES 2012. It was rumored that Apple would begin to use the newer Gorilla Glass in their products but the relationship between the two companies has remained a mystery.
The relationship between the two companies originally started when Steve Jobs visited Corning Headquarters in 2006 and told Wendell Weeks (the CEO) not to be afraid of making things. Corning didn’t end up making anything worth Jobs’ while though as none of the company’s materials made it to Apple’s products after that. Furthermore, the company wasn’t even included in Apple’s supplier list last year but things might look different this upcoming year.
It seems that Apple may have slipped with information on their new Job Creation page and confirmed its new relationship with Corning:
For example, this figure also includes workers in Texas who manufacture processors for iOS products, Corning employees in Kentucky and New York who create the majority of the glass for iPhone, and FedEx and UPS employees.

Well if you've seen the youtube videos of iPhone vs Galaxy then you will see the glass on the iPhone is pathetic so it needs to be stronger.
I dont care if its thicker or heavier it needs to be strong so if you do drop it by accident then it wont crack or break which atm all iphones do. If you drop an iPhone then you need to buy a new one. If you drop a Galaxy you pick it up and keep going.

Hold on to it, problem solved, it isn't a toy, it shouldn't be treated as such.

But gorillas like bananas, not Apples.

You mean iPhone (6), since technically the 4S is the fifth iPhone. But I digress....

Cool let's all use personal insults because we disagree.

Here's another example:
What would you say next? You could say a few things. The most obvious would be 8, but what about 10, or even 30 (I am sure there are others).
Or, here's a thought, there really needs be no pattern at all, because Apple will sell the next gen iPhone regardless of its naming scheme, and the only morons will be those who are calling other names.

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

I'm exited and at the same time not that thrilled about this article for a couple reaons.
This new corning gorilla glass isn't stronger based upon their key highlighted points. It's brighter, slimmer and sleeker and more responsive... doesn't mention anything about being stronger. If this is mentioned elsewhere then awesome. However,
the second reason I'm not thrilled is gorilla glass isn't that amazing except on the Samsung Galaxy S 4G. I work for t-mobile and can't tell you how many android phones I see come in with shattered screens. Mine alone and a coworkers galaxy s2 and mytouch by htc both shattered from one foot drops on to the side. My iphones however survived full drops onto my garage floor.

Seriously this isnt an issue with people? I dont treat my phone like a toy. I treat it like a computer. But sometimes its drops. And it just so happen that i can drop it from my ear down to the ground and it will be okay yet, it was on my lap i stood up fell on my wooden floor and broke. such crap. Problem solved this isnt a toy? Thats not even a answer. If you don't have that problem well good for you. But clearly other people do so shut it if your just to make an ignorant. As for insurance i looked into getting it.. waste of my money. Every insurance i looked at was crap. Deductible of this and that only 3 times you can send it in.. Or i can go to my local store where the guy changes my screen in 10mins for 1/4 the cost.

Or you can hold on to it, if you're that accident prone, buy a case, there are many out there

I am quite amazed by some of the comments. How about this, get a nice case, like you always should? Problem solved. No device is perfect on it's own. I always apply a screen protector and a case on all my devices.

Thats why they invented a brilliant thing called Cases!! Get an Otterbox: Problem solved.
