During the new corona virus pandemic, Apple introduced a home-based office policy for employees, but the company still has several new products still under development. Apple is pushing ahead with the development of upgraded home Pods and Apple TVs, low-cost iPads, new Apple Watches and new iMacs, which could be released as early as this year, the report said.
Us tech blog 9to5Mac has also reported several times that Apple is about to launch a new Apple TV, but the details are unknown.
Media reported that Apple’s home-based employees not only use the company’s own communications services to communicate, but also use external instant messaging services such as Slake. On the meeting side, employees hold conference calls and video conferences. For confidentiality, Apple requires employees to communicate through FaceTime services, Slake apps, and Cisco Jabber or WebEx. In terms of file sharing, Apple only allows employees to use the company’s own productivity app suite, Salesforce’s Quip app and Box app.
In addition, the report said Apple is expected to release the iPhone 12 in the “normal fall window.” On the software side, the iOS 14 and watchOS 7 operating systems are “currently being developed as planned.”
