Apple 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 (Jul 20).

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. 

Apple did not respond to a Reuters request for comment.

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 and Salesforce.com, have opted for hybrid or permanent remote-work models.
