Gorilla Glass

Definition - What does Gorilla Glass mean?

Gorilla Glass is an alkali-aluminosilicate glass developed by Corning that's primarily used as cover glass for mobile devices. Because it's resilient, durable and remarkably thin, it has been made to safeguard displays and touch screens without compromising the screen or adding bulkiness to the device. Although Gorilla glass was originally developed in the 1960s, it made its debut as the front LCD screen cover in the original iPhone released by Apple back in 2007.
