Apple is said to be planning to open a Research and Development centre in Shanghai.

According to a Cnet China report, via AppleInsider, the three-building campus will be located in the Pudong area of Shanghai. A separate report has claimed that Apple will open a R&D centre in Beijing.

Apple CEO Tim Cook recently visited China where he discussed Apple’s business in the region, where over the past few years Apple has been criticised for labour disputes and discontent.

Apple is also said to have plans to set up a data centre dedicated to the App Store and iTunes in that country.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has announced that the company is planning to manufacture one of its existing Mac lines exclusively in the US from this year. In early December Apple CEO Tim Cook said that Apple intended to invest US$100 million so that it can bring some of its Mac production back to the US.
