Apple signed a deal last year with GT Advanced technologies to build a plant to produce sapphire glass, the sapphire glass is expected to be used in the iPhone 6 and also the Apple iWatch.
Apple are in the process of building the plant with GT Advanced Technologies in Arizona, and and now according to a recent report, Apple are looking to expand the plant.
The reason apple is expanding the plant is to ‘accommodate higher yields for a yet unknown component’ which is expected to be the glass display for the new iPhone 6.
Apple would need to manufacture a large amount of displays for the iPhone 6, we previously heard that Apple has ordered 90 million iPhone’s from Foxconn, and is also working with other manufacturers on producing the iPhone 6.
