On June 13, 2017, Apple Inc. issued the following statement via e-mail, along with related background information, to certain members of the media regarding the issuance of the 2027 Notes: “Leadership from the business community is essential to address the threat of climate change and protect our shared planet. This bond will support Apple’s ongoing work to lower greenhouse gas emissions, drive renewable energy investment and conserve precious resources.

Under Rule 15c6-1 of the Exchange Act, trades in the secondary market generally are required to settle in three business days, unless the parties to a trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade notes prior to the third business day before the settlement date will be required, by virtue of the fact that the notes initially will settle in T+5, to specify alternative settlement arrangements to prevent a failed settlement.
