In October, Apple suspended hiring for most jobs outside of research and development, according to a report by Bloomberg. Apple aims to cut costs and new hiring freeze pursues a july plan that Apple has put in place to slow down hiring and spending.

The pause in hiring does not apply to teams working on future devices and long-term initiatives, but sources who spoke to Bloomberg said it will impact “business functions and standard hardware and software engineering roles.”

Apple’s website still lists open jobs, but the hiring process is on hold behind the scenes. News of the extended hiring freeze was originally reported earlier this week by Initiated, and the site said Apple had “suspended nearly all hiring.” Staff across multiple divisions have been told Apple won’t be onboarding new hires for several months, possibly until late September 2023.

InitiatedApple sources said Apple hasn’t provided a budget for new hires and that budgets within the company are “under review” as Apple aims to cut costs.

Apple in a statement said Initiated which he continues to hire, but due to “the current economic environment” he is “taking a very deliberate approach in certain parts of the business”.

“We are very confident in Apple’s future and are investing for the long term. We want to be thoughtful and make smart decisions that allow us to continue to fuel innovation for the long term,” Apple said.

During the fiscal fourth quarter 2022 earnings call, Apple said it would see slower growth during the holiday quarter. Mac sales in particular should fall dramatically compared to last year because Apple does not plan to launch any Mac at the end of 2022. There are no more products that would be launched this year, in fact.
