Apple is to donate 7 million yuan (over USD 1 million) to the disaster relief effort at Jiuzhaigou which was hit by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake earlier this week.
The figure, confirmed by the China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation, is the largest sum the foundation has been promised so far.
The donation will be used to help survivors rebuild their homes.
In the past, the US phone giant has also donated 7 million yuan to help flood relief in the mid and lower reaches of the Yangtze River in 2016, and 10 million yuan to help those affected by the Yunnan earthquake in 2014.
