New drone footage shows progress on Apple’s ‘Spaceship’ Campus 2

Another month, another video of the development of Apple’s spaceship campus captured by a drone. The latest footage of ‘Campus 2’ shows some pretty hefty advances to the building, including signs of new work on the canopies, plants around the building, and more.

The new video shows renewed progress — the previous update we got of the campus showed that progress had slowed thanks to bad weather, and excess water seemed to have affected the landscaping. Now, however, it seems as though the water has drained enough to continue work in most areas around the building.

As can be seen in the video, the research and development facility now has pavement in front of it, and lighting poles have been placed around the building — helping illuminate walkways and the paved parking lot area. On top of that, the main transit tunnel is getting a walkway, around which trees have been planted. Trees have also been planted near Apple’s fitness center.

Outside of the main building, workers have been using cranes to install more canopies for the windows, and the finishing touches to other canopies that are already in place are being added, too. It’s also estimated that 70 percent of the solar panels have been installed. It also seems like the parking garages have been installed — and workers are using them to park their cars while they finish the building process.

Apple is hoping to completely finish the building this year, and a whopping 12,000 employees will move in to the 2.8-million-square-foot building. Of course, that doesn’t mean Apple won’t have other buildings in the area — but the new building will certainly serve as a kind of “Apple HQ.”

Apple has a bunch of new products coming, but not this year
Tim Cook Apple Unleashed

Apple may have a lot coming our way in 2023, if the latest rumors are to be believed. We could see everything from a 15-inch MacBook Air to an M3 iMac to a VR headset. While this is exciting, it may mean that the end of the year will be left more bare, with no Apple event scheduled for October.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman dropped the report about the apparent lack of an Apple event in his weekly newsletter, Power On, over the weekend. Gurman is considered a highly accurate source for reports on future Apple products, so when he says there will be no Apple event next month, you can depend on it.
