Apple, following the news of the dreadful events in Paris, has updated its French home page adding a black ribbon to pay its respects to the country and to those affected.
You can check on the page at apple.com/fr, and the black ribbon can be found at the bottom of the screen. As 9to5mac notes, Google has done the same to its home page (pictured below). The black ribbon is indeed a sign of mourning; currently, 129 people have lost their lives following the attack, and 352 have been injured (99 critically so), according to the BBC.
Apple has also reportedly been calling its retail employees in France and checking that they’re safe. Cupertino has 19 retail locations in France, with three located inside Paris.
The company has indeed responded to tragedy in the past, donating $1.6 million to aid Chinese earthquake victims in 2014, taking donations for people affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines in 2013, and also donating $2.5 million towards Hurricane Sandy relief the year before.
