A few years ago I dropped my iPhone on the ground, cracked the glass, and paid a whopping $250 to get it replaced.
I wrote a couple posts about the cracked iPhone screen incident and have since received hundreds upon hundreds of comments on them from readers who also had bad experiences damaging their iPhone screens. A couple of lawyers even claimed Apple deserved to be sued over the issue.
Now, Steve Jobs has announced that Apple has developed a new “glass that’s 30 times harder than plastic” for iPhone 4.
Did Apple develop a stronger iPhone glass in response to the thousands of iPhone users who have made the expensive mistake of cracking their iPhone screens?
Hopefully fewer people will be victims of cracked iPhone screens once the new iPhone is released. Has this ever happened to you?
