Apple: “We Have Created Or Supported Half A Million Jobs In The U.S.”

March 3, 2012 2:42 pm

Well, all that criticism had to have some response from Apple – and we spotted this from the response:

“Throughout our history, Apple has created entirely new products — and entirely new industries — by focusing on innovation. As a result, we’ve created or supported more than 500,000 jobs for U.S. workers: from the engineer who helped invent the iPad to the delivery person who brings it to your door.”

and this one:

“With more than 550,000 apps and more than 24 billion downloads in less than four years, the App Store has created an entirely new industry: iOS app design and development. The app revolution has added more than 210,000 iOS jobs to the U.S. economy since the introduction of iPhone in 2007.** And Apple has paid more than $4 billion in royalties to developers through the App Store. ”
