Apple on Friday updated its website with a new job creation section detailing the company’s role in creating American jobs. Since its inception, the Cupertino-based company claims to have created or supported more than half a million jobs for U.S. workers across 50 states. “Throughout our history, Apple has created entirely new products — and entirely new industries — by focusing on innovation,” the company said on its website. “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.” Of the jobs created, 304,000 span engineering, manufacturing and transportation while an additional 210,000 have been created due to the iOS app economy.
