Apple does not have to keep it's overseas money in short term cash-like instruments being slowly eaten away by inflation. It could do what most of us here are doing, invest the money. Use money to make more money.

The fact that they are keeping it very short term means either that they are inept in managing it, or that they want it to be available almost instantly if a need for cash appears. That might be that there are long term plans to do more vertical integration. Or some large acquisition though
