Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook, who has been in China this week, continued his trip with a stop at a Foxconn Technology manufacturing plant, a key supplier that has been under scrutiny for work conditions.
Cook's visited Foxconn's plant in the city of Zhengzhou, which employs 120,000 people and produces iPhones, on Wednesday, according to various news reports.
Foxconn is one of Apple's key suppliers. The Taiwanese company is key to the production of two of Apple's flagship products, the iPhone and iPad, and may soon get in on the production of the future Apple iTV, according to Forbes.
Cook's trip to China is his first as chief executive of Apple and his first since he traveled to the country to investigate the labor conditions at Foxconn plants after a series of employee suicides back in 2010, according to PCWorld.
