Apple is such a huge company, it isn’t too difficult to find ten interesting facts about it. But the facts on this list are likely ones that you have not read before. Read below and find out if you know any of the Apple trivia in part 2 of our list of 10 things you probably didn’t know about Apple!
Number Five: The Average Apple Headquarters Employee Makes Over $100,000
Not too shabby, even if the numbers are probably inflated somewhat by the extravagant salaries of those at the very top of the corporate hierarchy. The average salary is $125,000, to be exact. But don’t let the workers who actually create the products themselves find out about that number.
