Apple verifies Corning Gorilla Glass used for iPhones



Apple has been ever known to keep all its company details surreptitious. Although it’s a well-known fact that Apple uses Corning Glass for its touchscreen products, they never revealed it officially. For some reason they even omitted the New York-based company from its 2011 list of suppliers.

Apple has been under the scanner lately regarding the debate centering on why U.S. companies can’t manufacture on U.S. soil and also the current working conditions in Chinese factories.

But as Cupertino has finally verified that it’s indeed using the company’s tough glass technology, Apple seems to be making a point on the change it is bringing about by offering the US citizens with more job opportunities.

“Corning employees in Kentucky and New York who create the majority of the glass for iPhone,” Apple credits the company in its Job Creation report.

This might help Apple heave a sigh of relief and get some negative reports off its back as we are sure the company will do all it can to clean up the mess and have a successful and victorious year ahead.
