It comes after recent conference with Chinese authorities reportedly in an effort to expand Apple’s factory facilities throughout China. Tim Cook had “great meetings” with officials, and that “China is very important to us and we look forward to even greater investment and growth here” Apple Spokesperson said. It’s still unclear how much longer Tim Cook will be in China for, or what his agenda in the country will be going forward.
