Will Your Next Smart Phone Have a Sapphire Screen?

When it comes to smart phone screens, strength and durability is an integral feature to prevent a cracked smart phone. Technology has looked to sapphire as a means to create the strongest mobile phone screens.

A recent report in MIT’s ‘Technology Review’, suggests that synthetic sapphire would be a near-indestructible alternative to the durable glass that is currently used in may smart phone screens. Synthetic sapphire is made using the same methods sapphire is created in nature. A process involving the heating and melting aluminum dioxide, and allowing it to crystallize creates a synthetic sapphire. This study identifies sapphire as the world’s second most rigid material, and a smart phone screen made of this would be protected against scratching and cracking. Only diamonds are considered stronger.  …

iPhone 5S Rumors – Will it be Entirely Aluminum?

Here at Switch Wireless, we pride ourselves on being your number one source for iPhone 5S rumors (and possibly the iPhone 6 too if Apple decides to skip 5S). Yesterday we told you about leaked iPhone 5S photos that showed a longer and leaner iPhone. Today we’re talking about the latest rumor, an all aluminum version of the iPhone according to Forbes magazine.

Keeping in line with tradition, Apple will probably launch the next iPhone in the latter part of 2013. And because Apple is known for its shrinking simplistic design, an all aluminum model would allow them to do away with unnecessary room.  The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted Apple a patent this week for microslot antenna technology which would also shrink the hardware needed to run an iPhone.…

Why It’s Important to Repair Your Cracked iPhone Screen

I have an confession to make. I too have damaged my iPhone’s screen on many occasions, so I know a lot about why it’s important to fix a cracked iPhone screen.  My most common mishap is dropping my iPhone on the hard concrete while getting into my car.  It falls in slow motion to the ground as I helplessly try and grab it. Sometimes I save it, sometimes I don’t. I’ve often wondered if it’s okay to use my iPhone even though it has a cracked screen. According to the Daily Mail, many of us break our smartphone at one point or another. According to the folks at Switch Wireless, the answer is definitely NO. Here are three reasons why it’s important to repair your cracked iPhone screen:

1.  The number one reason it’s important to fix your cracked iPhone screen is your safety! Even if it’s just a small crack, the crack can easily grow until it covers the entire screen.  As you know, we use our iPhones by tapping the screen.  If you happen to tap or swipe the area that was cracked you could easily cut yourself. Don’t apply tape to the crack either as that can cause the glass to gradually break into many pieces.  It’s also important to fix your cracked iPhone screen because you hold it close to your ears and lips and you need to take care of those! …
