Apple to repurpose Mesa, Arizona GT Advanced facility as a data center
Though the GT Advanced saga is now at a close, Apple appears to have some new plans for the Mesa, Arizona factory that once housed the sapphire-screen manufacturer. According to a new report, the tech giant will turn the factory into a new data center.
Bloomberg also notes that the deal will see Apple investing upwards of $2 billion in the conversion of the factory to a data center.
