With putting efforts towards improving working conditions in its supply chain, Apple has published a regular update to its Labor and Human Rights page detailing its efforts on stopping supplies in its chain with not letting working to work for long hours. Apple’s updated with saying that it is now keeping a track record of about 1 million workers – up from 900,000 in November and 500,000 the time when the program starts in January.

The update requires workers working in Apple supply chain have not to work for over 60 hours a week.
