Apple has informed its corporate employees that they must return to the office three days a week starting September 5.

Employees will now need to work on-site Tuesday and Thursday, as well as a third day set by individual teams, according to Bloomberg.

In May, Apple began requiring employees to work in-office two days a week as part of Apple's hybrid work program. The move was seen as a compromise as the tech giant wanted employees to work three days a week.

Apple employees were not on board with the shift to in-person work. According to one study, 56% of Apple workers actively sought employment elsewhere.

Apple's director of machine learning, Ian Goodfellow, has resigned from the company after three years, in part due to the return-to-office policy.

Goodfellow later joined up with Google's AI research branch, DeepMind.

In June, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the company was trialing ways to balance remote working with in-office time.
