Apple says it's working hard to improve labor conditions at the factories of its Chinese contractors. It said it also discovered that one of the region's labor agencies had conspired with the manufacturer, providing children to them and helping forge age-verification documents. Apple said in its report that it alerted the provincial government, which fined the agency and suspended its business license. "The children were returned to their families, and PZ was required to pay expenses to facilitate their successful return," Apple says in the report.
Apple announced in December that it would begin to make some of its Mac computers in America in 2013.
