Apple has cut staff in its iServices consulting unit, as part of a restructuring plan.

Apple would not reveal how many jobs have been cut, according to CNet, but the company insists the move does not indicate further job losses.

Apple's iServices provides technical assistance and consultancy services - including Mac Integration, which offers schools installation, upgrade and assessment advice.

Fred Anderson, Apple's chief financial officer, announced earlier this year that the company did not expect to make any job cuts. He said: "We are not planning an across-the-board layoff. We don't want to mortgage our future."

"Our main asset is human talent, and we cannot afford to lose it," he added.
