The hunt for information on what is being produced continues

Apple Balla reports that Apple would be returning to US production with their plant that was set to open in Mesa, Arizona. Not much has been released on the topic and Apple has remained expectedly quiet on the topic. Recently, however, documents have been released that might shed some light on what is going on behind closed doors at a plant that is now scheduled to open as early as February. In fact, the documents show that they are working at a fevered pace to have it open then.

What is now known is that the plant with be producing sapphire crystals. CEO Tim Cook hasn’t said much about it, but it is expected that they will be used in the next lines of Apple products. It has not been used before, but these crystals could produce screens, camera lenses, and buttons that are much more resilient than the Gorilla Glass that Apple has traditionally used in their products. The scratch and break resistant properties are unbelievable and would add a layer to protection on their famously expensive line of smartphones and tablets. The weeks to come will likely reveal more information on exact plans, although the documents say that they will be looking to export the crystals as well, which leaves many more questions unanswered.
