Apple is delaying the return of staff to its offices, as global Covid cases rise, Bloomberg reports.

The iPhone-maker had intended to bring workers in for three days a week from September but this had now been put back until at least October, the news agency said.

Sources told Bloomberg employees would be given at least a month's notice before having to return.

'Not alone'

Apple's plans for a return to the office had been met with firm opposition from some staff.

In June, telling workers they would have to return to their desks.

In the memo, Mr Cook said he missed the "hum of activity" of in-person working and was "not alone" in that sentiment.

said the plans made workers "choose between either a combination of our families, our wellbeing, and being empowered to do our best work, or being a part of Apple".

'Office-centric culture'

to staff, telling them to return to work three days a week by September.

But other companies have been adjusting their plans as the pandemic has progressed.

In March, Amazon said: "Our plan is to return to an office-centric culture as our baseline."

But in June, this was updated to: "Our new baseline will be three days a week in the office," adding employees could "work remotely up to two days a week".
