We've heard a lot about how this year's iPhone will only be an incremental upgrade from the current version, and may be called the "iPhone 4S" because of it. But according to Digitimes, its screen could be changed slightly.

Apple has supposedly bought between 200 and 300 glass cutting machines for its screen supplier, so they can yield larger numbers of the curved cover glass needed in time for the launch, expected a bit later than usual this year. [Digitimes]
