In the latest update to the company’s Supplier Responsibility page, Apple has changed the estimated number of workers in its supply chain from 900,000 to 1 million, MacRumors reports. Along with the new, higher figure, the monthly-tracked Work-Hour Compliance chart has also been updated, showing a bit of a dip from the previous month from around 90% down to 88% for November.
Work-hour compliance hit a high of 97% earlier this year in July and August before dipping dramatically to around 87% in September. The figure then recovered a bit in October before dropping again last month.
