It is a natural evolution from all the investments of the last few years. The goal of this facility is to ensure the best product, durability and performance, and the lab team here will test and analyze the entire Apple product range. This property is the first of its kind in Europe and we are delighted to have it here in Cork.

We started that team at the end of 2019. Despite the COVID, that team has grown: now it has over 680 people and continues to grow. It’s a really, really diverse team with over 20 nationalities and a huge variety of experiences.
So the new engineering and testing facility and teams like AIML are really exciting additions to the work we do in Cork. It’s really cool to see all the skills we’re building here and how they relate to the work we do.
