Apple sends care packages with iPads and more to employees stranded in China

According to details shared on Chinese social network Weibo, Apple has sent gift packages that include iPads, hand sanitizers, disinfecting wipes, face masks, and more to its employees stranded in China due to the coronavirus.

COVID-19 coronavirusHartley Charlton for MacRumors:

While over half of Apple Stores have reopened on shortened hours in China, many retail, corporate, and manufacturing staff remain at home. Families who have received the care packages are said to be “moved” by Apple’s efforts.

A letter enclosed in each parcel says that the iPads are provided for children’s online learning or to help pass the time during the “prolonged stay at home.”

MacDailyNews Take: This is obviously a very nice gesture by Apple to their stranded employees.


  1. So are we saying the West’s policy on muslims (muslim radicalism containment) is better?

    You know the giant middle east war which has engulfed countries, killed hundreds of thousands, maimed millions and made millions refugees?

    The USA invaded Iraq a country which did not attack it, killed thousands. (The pretext was WMD, none was found). Hundreds of thousands later died as the war spiralled out of control. The war spilled into neighbouring countries like Syria, Iran, Turkey and fighting is still going on today, 20 years later. It spawned organizations like ISIS. Bombs, drone strikes ,

    There are giant concentration camps in Iraq as big as small cities. ISIS was started in one of these USA run camps.

    Have we forgotten things like Abu Ghraib? (Stuff like that is still going on, via local proxies )

    In the months where the west was busy criticizing Chinese ‘police brutality’ during recent the Hong Kong protests where protestors killed by police was zero (one protestor had fallen off a bridge, another been killed by protestors) USA backed Iraqi forces killed at least 600 protestors.

    That continues today:


    “Chilling eyewitness testimonies and verified video analysis by Amnesty International confirm that security forces have resumed their campaign of deadly violence against largely peaceful protesters in Baghdad and cities in southern Iraq, the organization warned today

    Death toll exceeds 600 since October with 12 reported killings this week alone
    Verified resumed use of live ammunition and deadly ‘smoker’ grenades to kill protesters
    Ongoing wave of intimidation, arrests and torture”

    ( )
    Meanwhile the EU to contain African migrants, many muslims from travelling to Europe has financed Libyans warlords to interdict and capture migrants on the shore or the sea (i.e EU funded piracy) . Migrants, at least 500,000 are kept in North African camps where they are tortured, killed or sold into slavery. Rape is daily affair.


    “The Libyan Coast Guard — supported with funds and resources from the E.U. and more specifically, Italy — has cracked down on boats smuggling refugees and migrants to Europe. With estimates of 400,000 to almost one million people now bottled up Libya, detention centers are overrun and there are mounting reports of robbery, rape, and murder among migrants, according to a September report by the U.N. human rights agency. Conditions in the centers have been described as “horrific,” and among other abuses, migrants are vulnerable to being sold off as laborers in slave auctions.”

    Not that Chinese authorities are great but when the West keeps on harping on Uighur after they have done and CONTINUE to do these things, condemnations (especially seen by third parties) seem hollow.

    1. Down votes but nobody can challenge my factual accounts. I simply cut and paste verified reports. Countless articles , government motions, condemnations by Western politicians, forum posters on the Uighur issues (Uighur, Uighur, Uighur) yet stuff I’ve mentioned (factual) like I said barely discussed.
      Slave Auctions (you can see videos of Africans in chains being sold for 300 -400 dollars ) in EU funded Libyan camps and nobody cares. (Imagine if you filmed Chinese doing that!)

      If people don’t look at their own errors first ( y’know Jesus’ “mote in The others eye while ignoring log in your own”) criticism falls flat.

      Downvotes of my factual post only shows Sino phobic racism.
      Like I said many areas Chinese government not great but just criticizing them while ignoring way bigger abuses by the West?

      People in Asia, Africa, South America etc seeing the West condemn Chine over Uighur are incredulous in disbelief when the think of the E.U camps, the war in the middle east etc

      (BTW I’m Canadian and lived in USA)

    2. Hey Cue. You should go back to history class. You are focusing on the present when you should study the past. Do that and try again.

  2. I hate to be crass, but maybe included are special “upgrade your iCloud storage” notices?

    We like you as a employee and we feel your pain, but we hope/expect you’ll choose the next iCloud storage tier.
