Now we know at least one thing that Apple will use its old headquarters at 1 Infinite Loop for: consolidating its teams that work on cloud and online services.Apple plans to unify its cloud computing employees, including Siri, Maps, iCloud, and other services, at its old headquarters at 1 Infinite Loop, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman reports.
Unifying the teams will help Apple transition onto a new Apple-developed infastrucure system codenamed "Pie." Siri, iTunes, and Apple News already run partially on Pie, with Maps transitioning in the next few years.Bloomberg also says that recent hire Peter Stern will lead cloud services.
Open office plan
The new office features an open floor plan, which may be bothering employees used to a more compartmentalized and quiet environment.
Only vice presidents and above will get formal offices - senior directors, who manage huge teams and get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars per year, will not be offered offices, as had been planned.
