Apple Confirms Next US Factory in Arizona

This factory will be dedicated to producing synthetic sapphire, currently used for the home button and camera lens cover of the iPhone 5S, and one of the hardest materials known. While Gorilla Glass is extremely strong and hardened, sapphire blows it away. If a future iPhone has a display made of sapphire, it will be virtually scratch-proof.
