Apple recruiting for R&D facility in Taiwan, report claims

updated 04:30 pm EDT, Thu August 8, 2013

Complex expected to be iPhone-focused

Apple is currently hiring a team to help start a research and development facility in Taiwan, a local report says. The office will allegedly concentrate on new iPhones, but may handle other tasks as well. Although no listings have appeared on Apple's website, recruitment efforts are said to be focusing on management and engineering positions. Such secrecy would be consistent with Apple's past behavior, especially if the company is trying to poach from other technology firms.

Taiwan is the headquarters of a number of major suppliers, such as Hon Hai/Foxconn and TSMC. Having an R&D complex in the area might allow Apple to both exploit local talent and collaborate more closely with its supply chain. Most Taiwanese suppliers' factories are actually based in mainland China, however.
