  • Apple said it would build a new campus in Texas for 15,000 employees on Thursday.
  • But that's not the only place the iPhone giant is expanding.
  • Here's an incomplete list of Apple's expanding footprint in the United States, and what it's likely to do at all of these new facilities. 

Apple's building a new campus in Austin, Texas, the iPhone giant announced on Thursday.

This new office complex could support up to 15,000 employees in departments like customer service, research and development, and operations, Apple said.

But that's not the only place where Apple is widening its footprint. Apple is starting to expand far beyond its headquarters in Cupertino, California, with offices, retail stores, and employees in all 50 states.

Part of this is in response to the Trump administration's pressure for Apple to do more manufacturing in the United States. Apple's responses over the past year have focused on how much business it already does in the U.S., even if the iPhone is largely assembled in China. 

On Thursday, Apple said its expansion wasn't only limited to Austin - it's going to three more states as well, and that's not even counting the data centers it had previously announced.

Here's where Apple may be expanding near you:

So while most of Apple's core research and development takes place in Silicon Valley, there's a good chance that there are people who work for Apple living near you.
