Last week, Apple touted the fact that it's responsible for creating and supporting 2.4 million jobs in the U.S. Now, the company has released an update to say that it's "directly and indirectly" responsible for creating 325,000 jobs in South Korea, which is the home of Samsung.
Apple created a new landing page on its website celebrating the milestone:
According to Apple, there are 500 Apple employees in South Korea; 125,000 jobs have been created by Apple partners; 200,000 jobs have been created in South Korea through the App Store ecosystem.
Apple's presence is significant in South Korea, where it competes with its local rival Samsung. Apple, of course, also relies on Samsung as a supplier of components for devices such as the iPhone.
