Apple is the number two Smartphone manufacturer in the world. Apple has grown into one of the largest companies in the world in recent years. Those who bought Apple shares ten years ago (just before the iPhone) are now happy to praise themselves. The sky is the limit, it seems. Apple does not intend to slow down in the coming years.
20,000 new jobs
Today the company brings out its future plans. They are ambitious to say the least. Over 20,000 new jobs will be created in the next five years. This concerns full-time employment in the United States. These people are not only working at Apple, but also at its suppliers. As you may know, there are countless small components in telephones. These must all be produced. Apple then assembles all these components into a working phone. Or rather, the company has this assembled. The Chinese Foxconn is currently putting most iPhones together. Apple should therefore keep the ‘control’ over this gigantic production chain.
Apple is preparing youngsters for the “economy app”
Apple will pump 350 billion dollars into the American economy in the next five years. The company receives money to invest from the government, but also the money itself. As a result, more than 30 billion dollars are invested in the development of new production facilities and the expansion of the existing factories. Apple currently reports that it has more than 84,000 Americans from 50 states. In addition, over two million jobs depend directly on Apple, for example because they mainly supply them. It is also planned to set up a new campus where young people can learn to code. So Apple wants to prepare these children for the “app economy”, as they put it into words themselves.

“Apple is a success story that could only have taken place in America. We are proud to build on our long history of supporting the economy “.
