    The facility will be located in Ishikawa, central Japan. It is expected to begin operations at some point in 2016. Unsurprisingly, the plant will will supply screens mainly for the Cupertino giant.

    JDI has declined to confirm the report. However, the company acknowledged that its constantly looking to become more competitive, including by building more production capacity.

    A display production facility will mark another large-scale investment for Apple. Recently, the company announced that it will invest $2 billion in a data center, and $850 million in a solar farm.
