    Apple's China Problem

    Apple's China Problem

    Much of Apple’s success is built around its relationship with China, which is both one of Apple’s largest markets as well as where most of its products are manufactured. It’s a complicated relationship that has seen Apple make compromises with an authoritarian regime over privacy and human rights in pursuit of huge profits. 
    This episode is produced in collaboration with reporter Wayne Ma and the technology and business publication ‘The Information.’

But that all changed when Apple started building revolutionary new devices that strayed from its roots as a computer company.
