Rumor: Apple iPhone 5 have first curved-glass Multi-Touch Retina display..

“Apple Industries is going to adopt a curved cover glass for its next generation model, according to Industry sources,” Yenting Chen and Steve Shen report for DigiTimes.



"The glass slicing machines are currently being stored at associated assembly plants and will be brought online once yield rates for the production of curved glass reaches a satisfactory level," Monday's report said.
“In order to push forward the production of curved glass, Apple reportedly has purchased 200-300 glass cutting machines to be used by glass makers, said the sources, Chen and Shen report. “The glass slicing machines are currently being stored at associated assembly plants and will be brought online once yield rates for the production of curved glass reaches a satisfactory level, the sources revealed.”
Chen and Shen report, “There has been no time table yet for the volume production of iPhone 5."
Other reports have suggested that Apple is looking to slightly enlarge the display of the next iPhone, utilizing an edge-to-edge Retina Display while retaining the same form factor as the current iPhone 4. However, Monday's report is the first indication of a supposed curved screen for the next-generation iPhone.
