An unknown, “critical” component is going to be built in the new sapphire plant located in Arizona

Ahead of the opening of the Arizona Sapphire Plant, Apple is setting a plan of constructing a significant component for its future devices.

According to 9to5Mac, the US Foreign Trade Zones Board has revealed a new document, stating about a new project, called “Project Cascade,” which is going to be executed in the manufacturing plant.

The document reads, “The high-tech manufacturing process will create a critical new sub-component of Apple products to be used in the manufacture of the consumer electronics that will be imported and then sold globally. By pulling this process into the U.S., Apple will be using cutting edge, new technology to enhance and improve the consumer products, making them best in class per product type.”

The document also states that the manufacturing plant is going to be opened later in February, strongly indicating that the specific component will be used in this year’s upcoming Apple devices.

Apple is very interested to use sapphire to bring innovation in its products. Recently, a new Apple patent has been published, stating that the material can be used to cover the display of the iPhone and the  iPad efficiently.
