Apple postpones office return to October due COVID-19 surge

Apple Inc. has postponed the return of employees to its office. The return has been delayed at least by a month, to October due to the surge in COVID-19 cases in the US and other countries, Bloomberg News reported on Tuesday. 

The employees will be informed at least a month before mandating a return to offices, sources told Bloomberg News. 

Apple CEO Tim Cook had originally planned for a September return, at least three days a week. 

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