The mask produced by Apple is of the higher quality N95 that are filtering out a minimum of 95 percent of airborne particles.

Cook said in his video:
“We’ve launched a company-wide effort, bringing together product designers, engineering, operations and packaging teams, and our suppliers to design, produce, and ship face shields for health workers. Our first shipment was delivered to Kaiser hospital facilities in the Santa Clara Valley this past week and the feedback from doctors was very positive.”
