The tech giant said the gender pay gap was due to more men in senior positions than women, which led to higher pay, bonuses and stock. Apple said 30% of its workforce in the UK (which numbers more than 6,000) was represented by women, with the number having risen from 28%in 2014.

The report comes a day before the deadline for British employers with more than 250 staff to report their gender pay gap under new regulations.
