Following the BBC’s politically charged Panorama show airing a damning documentary about Apple's factories yesterday, MacRumors reports that Apple CEO Tim Cook has said that he is “deeply offended by the suggestion that Apple would break a promise to the workers in our supply chain or mislead our customers in any way.”
The message from Cook was relayed to Apple’s UK staff by Apple’s senior vice president of operations, Jeff Williams.
“Panorama’s report implied that Apple isn’t improving working conditions,” said Cook in the letter. “Let me tell you, nothing could be further from the truth.”
Williams also hinted in the email that Apple had given the BBC relevant facts about its commitment to its workforce worldwide around the world, but that the BBC had chosen not to use them.
