Apple Confirms Plans to Build Data Center in Iowa, Contribute Up to $100M to Community Projects


Apple is investing $1.3 billion into the facility, which it says will create over 550 construction and operations jobs in the Des Moines area.
"Apple is responsible for 2 million jobs in all 50 states and we're proud today's investment will add to the more than 10,000 jobs we already support across Iowa, providing even more economic opportunity for the community," said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO.
Apple also said it will contribute up to $100 million to a newly created Public Improvement Fund dedicated to community development and infrastructure around Waukee. The fund, to be established and managed by the City of Waukee, will support the development of community projects like parks, libraries and recreational spaces, as well as infrastructure needs

A true data center. Once it's done Apple confirmed only about 50 positions will be permanent.
