Well that meeting took place last night, and the full Cupertino City Council gave its unanimous approval to the project. Pending any petitions for reconsideration, Apple has just one more hurdle left to clear—a final reading next month—before it can break ground… Read More

Last week, Apple cleared another hurdle in its effort to land its ‘Spaceship’ campus in Cupertino by 2016, garnering a thumbs up from the city’s planning commission. Now it just has to win the approval of city council, and it’s home free.
And the company is pulling out all of the stops ahead of next week’s city council vote. It’s begun sending out brochures asking residents of Cupertino for their support, and earlier today, executives introduced a 3D model of the campus… Read More

In a somewhat surprising move, Apple is allegedly asking select Cupertino locals for feedback on the interface changes in iOS 7. Specifically, the firm is thought to be holding campus sessions where they challenge cherry-picked Cupertino residents to weigh in on iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks.
Additionally, the company is said to be polling its retail store employees by seeding the initial preview of OS X Mavericks to Genius Bar and on-floor Apple Retail employees, the practice seemingly in line with Apple’s previous major software updates… Read More

Apple Tuesday released an 80-page report detailing the economic benefits of Apple’s current headquarters. Along the way, the iPhone maker hopes a peek at the potential flood of cash headed toward local government coffers will help gain city approval of its upcoming iSpaceship campus.
Among the highlights: Apple maintains a local payroll of $159 million for 16,000 employees, making it the largest sole employer in Cupertino. Creation of Apple’s Campus 2 (aka iSpaceship) would create 7,400 “new high-quality jobs.” And, new campus construction will add 9,200 full-time construction jobs to the local economy over a three-year period, the report adds… Read More

Apple engineers agonize over every imaginable aspect of the company’s products. Their attention to detail is legendary and all-encompassing, from packaging and unboxing experience to press releases and TV commercials to screws, wires and the specific snow white paint for the home button of the white iPhone. No detail is too small, no stone is left unturned.
So why should it be any different with a massive circular structure and the 176-acre campus, dubbed by the media iSpaceship and officially named Campus 2? As Cody told you, the project has been delayed until 2016. A spokesperson for the iPhone maker just issued an official statement, basically saying the company is designing Campus 2 the same way they’d build an iPhone… Read More

If you’re an Apple fan, or at least follow the company, you know that it doesn’t have a reputation for hitting deadlines. The iTunes Match launch was delayed, as is iTunes 11. And it doesn’t look like the new iMacs are going to make it on time.
So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the ribbon cutting ceremony for Apple’s new spaceship-like research campus has also been pushed back. According to a new report, the company’s new workplace won’t be set for open until mid-2016… Read More

What do you do if you have $75 billion dollars in the bank, and your company is growing so fast that you can’t find a big enough area to house your operations?
That’s easy, you design and construct a seemingly stadium-sized building out of pure glass to send a message that your company is innovative and that money isn’t an object. And that’s exactly what Apple’s doing… Read More
