Apple might have a big plan for using sapphire in its future products, as Tim Cook, the CEO of the company, reveals that the material will be applied for “Secret Project.”

According to Mac Rumors, Cook refused to reveal any more information as he thinks keeping the matter secret will be good for Apple, as the company is “getting ripped off left, right and sideways” by the rivals. He added that the company is working on extending its current activity.

Though it is unclear about Apple’s secret project, many specialists predict that the sapphire will be used in the ultra-durable screen in future model of the iPhone. Some reports also claim that the specific material will be applied in the upcoming iWatch.

Recently, Apple has opened a new plant in Arizona, which supplies a significant amount of sapphire. Different rumors have been surfacing throughout the internet, stating about its possible application. But none of them has been able to reveal the actual information. However, Cook’s statement has further intensified the mystery of the future application of the material.
