After more than a year working remote, Apple is finally starting to talk about coming back to the office.
As reported by The Verge, Tim Cook has sent an email to employees asking them to return to the office for at least three days a week starting in September. In addition to adopting a hybrid schedule, employees will also be able to work completely remote for up to two weeks every year.
Tim Cook has been a vocal proponent of coming back to the office once it was once again safe. Speaking of which, Cook also encouraged employees to get vaccinated.
Apple has not yet responded to The Verge's request for comment about the change.
