Apple awards $45 million to Corning

Apple just announced it is awarding $45 million from its Advanced Manufacturing Fund to Corning. 

The $45 million will boost Corning's manufacturing capacity in the U.S, and accelerate research and development (R&D) into innovative new technologies that support durability and long-lasting product life.

Corning was awarded $450 million from the Fund over the past four years, which Apple stated to have supported more than 1,000 jobs across Corning's U.S operations, and boosted R&D into state-of-the-art-glass processes. This led to the creation of Ceramic Shield, the display glass used on the iPhone 12. 

The latest news came almost a week after Apple awarded $410 million to optical tech company II-IV, which manufactures vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSELs) that power Face ID, Memoji, Animoji, and Portrait Mode selfies.
