Apple said on Monday that it will spend $430 billion on US-based projects in the future, including the creation of 20,000 jobs over the next five years and a new campus in North Carolina.
Apple’s original plan was to spend $350 billion, but the iPhone-maker is raising that by 20 percent over the next five years to reach $430 billion. Apple said “tens of billions” of this investment will span “next-generation silicon development” and “5G innovation.”
“At this moment of recovery and rebuilding, Apple is doubling down on our commitment to US innovation and manufacturing with a generational investment reaching communities across all 50 states,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a statement.
