Apple handed layoff notices to a “handful of workers” today in the iServices division of the company. An Apple representative told CNET the restructuring does not mean that more cuts will follow.
“Apple continually reviews its business to ensure we are operating at maximum efficiency,” the company said in a statement to CNET. “As part of this ongoing evaluation, we have restructured the iTools/iServices group to more effectively run our business and serve our customers.”
Apple describes their iServices group as a wide range of custom, personalized technical services — from simple to complex — and a skilled team that’s ready to deliver.
“We are not planning an across-the-board layoff,” Apple CFO Fred Anderson said in January. “Because we are an innovator, our most important resource is our talent … We don’t want to mortgage the future.”
