Apple employees are reportedly using new, unreleased Apple products at home because of the coronavirus

It apparently takes a worldwide pandemic for Apple to loosen its notoriously secretive approach: The company is letting engineers take home and work on new versions of major Apple products, according to a new Bloomberg report.

The unreleased Apple products they’re taking home reportedly include everything from the next iPhone, expected to arrive this fall, to the next Apple Watch, which could arrive “as early as this year.”

Apple Park — the sprawling new headquarters Apple opened in 2017 — is home to much of Apple’s product engineering and design. But Apple Park, like many other offices around the world, is currently shut down.

Apple’s engineers are working from home, and the only way to keep work progressing on upcoming products is for those engineers to bring new, unreleased products home.
