Apple announced today that it will be investing $350 billion in the US economy over the next five years, creating more than 20,000 jobs.
The California-based company acknowledged in December that iPhone software can slow down some phones with battery problems and apologized for the issue.

With the update, Cook said, "We're going to give people the visibility of the health of their battery so it's very, very transparent - this hasn't been done before".
In a statement, the watchdog said the two companies pushed software updates to phones "without reporting the possible consequences" of the update and without information to maintain the performance they were promoted as having when they were sold. "This hasn't been done before".
