Apple To Build R&D Center In China By End Of Year

Tim Cook Announces R&D Center to Be Built in China 'By the End of the Year'

Mitchel Broussard | August 16, 2016

Apple is planning an all-new research and development center in China, attempting to boost its presence and market share in the country following multiple reports of the iPhone's dwindling returns as users flock towards low-cost alternatives. The R&D center, said "to be built by the end of the year," will mark Apple's first location of its kind in the Asia-Pacific region (via Reuters). 
The announcement comes from Apple CEO Tim Cook, on a visit in China this week, who spoke with Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli on Tuesday and detailed the company's plans for the center. Those details weren't specifically disclosed to the public, so it's still unclear where the new R&D center will be located, or how many employees it might house.

According to the Shanghai Municipal Commission, Apple has registered three firms across a trifecta of buildings in Pudong, Shanghai, one of which will be dedictated to procurement management and R&D." Source:
