Apple expands office space beyond its yet to be filled Apple Park
While some employees have moved into Apple Park, work is still under way on the new campus. Despite Apple Park providing 2.8 million square feet of office space, Apple is continuing to expand its room for employees with construction underway in two new leased buildings in Santa Clara.
Matthew Roberts is back with his latest 4K drone footage of Apple Park – including a closer look at the atrium of the Steve Jobs Theater.
Visible construction progress tends to be rather uneven in nature. There’s a lot of largely invisible foundational work in the early stages, and then right at the end we see a lot of rapid changes as the finishing touches are applied and construction equipment removed …
Apple Park construction workers are posting on-site photos and videos to Snapchat
As noted this morning on Reddit, workers on the Apple Park campus site are posting photos and video snaps to Snapchat for the world to see. Whilst this openness surely isn’t endorsed by Apple, it seems to have been going on for a long time unnoticed with snaps going back weeks. There is enough for it to appear on the ‘Snap Map’ as a heat spot at least.

In a new interview with the Wall Street Journal, Apple’s design chief Jony Ive details various elements of Apple Park including a few tidbits we haven’t heard before. Ive’s interview will be the cover story on the WSJ Magazine’s August issue.
Although the piece does not say when Apple Park will be fully up and running, it does say that Ive’s design team will move over in the fall, scheduled as ‘one of the last’. This suggests that Apple is aiming to have all employees at Apple Park by the end of the year.
Only a small number of employees have so far moved into the new Apple Park campus, but its presence has already created a boom in the number of property developments, reports the New York Times. Prices of existing properties are said to have doubled in price since 2011.
Local businesses are also gearing up for an anticipated boost in demand …
Apple has announced a new Apple Pay initiative to raise funds for the National Parks Foundation, running for the first half of July.
From July 1 through 15, Apple is donating $1 to the National Park Foundation for every purchase made with Apple Pay at any Apple Store, on apple.com or through the Apple Store app in the US
Tim Cook explained why the company is doing it …
Earlier this week, satellite footage highlighted the progress Apple has made in construction on Apple Park, showing the new campus go from skeleton form to near completion. Now, Duncan Sinfield is back with his newest drone footage, offering our clearest look yet at Steve Jobs Theater.
Apple has been hard at work on its new Apple Park headquarters for several time, recently starting to put the final touches on the campus. Now, satellite imaging company Planet Labs has shared new overhead footage of the spaceship construction progress over the last two years, condensing the footage down to just 18 seconds and showing the amazing progress…
Apple hiring Apple Park Visitor Center staff ahead of official opening
Apple Park is getting closer to an official opening as the company begins hiring staff for the visitor center that will include an Apple Store and, for the first time, a cafe that’s also open to the public.
DJI’s latest drone, the Spark, got some serious attention when it was announced last month, for good reason too. The adorably tiny drone is advertised as something for beginners that doesn’t require much in terms of setup. Currently, though, there are some issues with the Spark’s WiFi connection. If you’re experiencing these problems, here’s how to fix it.
Last Thursday I finally got my hands on the super-portable $500 DJI Spark and, as a photographer and drone enthusiast, it’s probably the most exciting iPhone accessory of the year. The Spark is such a small drone that you can take it with you anywhere and anytime, while it also has optics and stabilization features along with some impressive AI that produces impressive imagery and video.
They say that the best camera is the one you have in your pocket. Having a drone that you can easily bring along on trips opens up a whole new world of possibilities. That’s what gets me the most excited…
[UPDATE 6/28: The highest bid ended at $255,000.]
Last month it was Tim Cook auctioning lunch at Apple Park for charity (which raised $688,999), and now it’s Eddy Cue’s turn. The SVP of Apple’s Internet Software and Services is working with Charitybuzz to raise money for the National Association of Basketball Coaches Foundation.
Apple Park is starting to look a lot more like a park as Apple makes rapid progress on the massive landscaping job and continues construction at the site. The images above and below give a good ground level look at the thousands of trees being planted around the main circular building on the 175-acre campus. These photos sent in by a 9to5Mac reader show how the site looked as of late last week.
While Apple announced back in February that Apple Park would be ready for employees to begin moving in by April, the site still appears to be more in construction mode and it’s unclear what Apple staff if any is actually already working at the new campus. The company is also expected to host future events at the 1000-seat Steve Jobs Theatre located at Apple Park, but chatter from construction workers is that finishing touches could go beyond the end of the year and the new iPhone unveiling expected to be Apple’s next event in September.
