Apple ‘Sapphire’ iPhone Lens – Whats it made of?




What is the Apple iPhone camera lens actually made of? Check out this incredibly in depth look into what elements make up the Apple iPhone camera lens. Why does the iPhone lens scratch at a level 6 on Mohs Scale of Hardness? Ill be using the Diamond selector tool, an XRF machine AND an electron microscope.

Apple has been telling us that their camera lens is made from sapphire ever since the iPhone 5s. That is 5 different phones now that have this lens. (5s, SE, 6, 6s, and 7)

Finding the elemental analysis of the iPhone camera lens was quite the adventure. A little outside of the normal repair and durability testing that we do here on this channel. But still a fun project.
