Apple to employ curved touchscreen for iPhone 6?

The folks at Digitimes are buzzing on rumors about Apple prepping a curved-glass design for iPhone 6. They have reported that the company has bought glass polishing equipment for its suppliers to aid them in preparation of devices fitted with curved cover glass. While Lens and Fuji focus only do iPhones. G-tech takes care of the requirements for iPad.

The curved touchscreen is expected to become an industry-standard element for gadgets next year, for it offers protection to the screen when either a phone or a tablet is kept face-down on a surface. iPhone 6 is expected to be out in fall next year so we’ll see how accurate this rumor-analysis turns out to be.
