Apple has found that, due to more men in senior roles, women at its UK operations make 5% less than men. Apple's report comes as a new British law requires companies to publish such information.

Why it matters: Tech companies have been examining their pay practices both in the U.S. and globally and looking at closing the pay disparities that exist. The fact that there are more men in senior positions often leads to an overall pay imbalance even when men in the same job make no more than female counterparts.
