The change comes in response to an internal uproar that erupted last week. When the new document was released, journalists immediately started reporting on what appeared to be a myriad of compensation discrepancies.

A San Francisco Mercury News article followed that story with one of its own, with a spreadsheet detailing the pay ranges for different jobs at Apple. The article, which was published on Wednesday, quickly made its way through Twitter, where those looking for pay transparency found a useful tool.

Apple isn’t the only tech company to get caught up in employee pay transparency. Facebook, which was also criticized after its updated annual report came out, made a similar attempt.

In both cases, both companies tried to clear up their mistakes by updating their own annual reports.
