Friday Sync-Up: Apple & The Uyghurs

Every Friday, I present a topic or question for our merry band of thinkers, leaders, and pirates to discuss in an open thread. Here is this week’s conversation starter:

An investigation by The Information asserts that seven of Apple’s suppliers use forced labor from China’s Xinjiang Province. These suppliers, according to the report, participate in labor programs that are a part of China’s genocide against Uyghur Muslims — directly contradicting the company’s previous statements and findings.

Question: If proven true, how would you like Apple to respond? Would it change your willingness to buy Apple products if no changes were made?
