According to Israel publication Globes, the Cupertino-based giant Apple is opening a development center in Ra’anana, the company’s third in the country. The new center will total a staff of about 100 to 150 employees which were fired by chipmaker Texas Instruments several weeks ago, which decided to lay off 250 employees.

Texas Instrument announced last year that it was laying off about 1,700 employees worldwide in lieu of reducing the expenditure in which most of the layoffs were in the wireless communication sector. Globes point out on saying that the company currently adding 100 to 150 employees, while other publication The Next Web cited sources revealed that the tech giant do have plans to add more.
