Apple's Taiwan-based supplier, Foxconn, says it has raised workers' salaries, Reuters reported on Friday.

"As a top manufacturing company in China, the basic salary of junior workers in all of Foxconn's China factories is already far higher than the minimum wage set by all local governments," the company said in a statement.

Foxconn, which makes popular Apple devices like the iPhone and iPad, has been criticized for the working conditions in some of its factories in China.

 

An article by The New York Times prompted protests and Apple has asked the non-profit Fair Labor Association to survey the factories.

Foxconn also makes devices for companies including Hewlett-Packard and Dell.
