Apple on Wednesday released its yearly Supplier Responsibility Report detailing external audits made in 2012 at factories where its parts and products are assembled. The company says it will also list the names and addresses of the company's top 200 suppliers. The report comes from almost 400 audits performed at all levels of the supply chain -- a 72 percent increase from Apple's audits in 2011, the company said. Apple also said it found no cases of underage labor in 2012's inspections.
