Apple to delay office returns to October

Apple Inc will delay the return of its employees to office by at least a month to October at the earliest, as COVID-19 cases surge back in the United States and abroad, Bloomberg News reported on Tuesday.

The iPhone maker will inform its employees at least a month before their expected return to offices, the report said, citing people familiar with the matter.

In June, the company asked employees to return to offices for at least three days a week from early September, veering from the stance of other big technology firms that were permitting full remote work.

Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook had originally planned a summer return.

Many tech companies, including Twitter Inc and Salesforce.com Inc, have opted for hybrid or permanent remote-work models.
