Tim Cook confirms Apple's new sapphire glass facility during ABC interview
With today being the 30th anniversary of the Mac, Apple CEO Tim Cook is making the media rounds. On Friday night, ABC will be showing its interview with Cook on World News with Diane Sawyer.But a segment of the interview was aired Friday morning on Good Morning America. During the chat with ABC News' David Muir, Cook confirmed that Apple's plant in Arizona is related to the production of sapphire glass for future devices, although he wouldn't say if sapphire glass is being used for an iPhone phablet.

Cook also relayed some personal information, telling Muir that he reads 700 to 800 emails a day sent from Apple customers. Not surprisingly, he mentioned that Apple maintains a high level of secrecy with black drapes hung over secret projects, explaining that Apple believes that "people love surprises."The CEO also showed off a dry sense of humor. When asked if the sapphire glass being produced in the new plant is for the iWatch, Cook came back and said that it was for a ring.

While the complete interview, which will include some comments about the NSA 'scandal', won't air until tonight, you can view the part of it that was broadcast Friday morning. All you need to do is click on the video below.
