Apple is planning to slow hiring in 2023, according to Bloomberg, making it the latest big tech company to shift its hiring plans.
The changes won’t affect every team, Bloomberg reports, but some groups won’t see increased staff next year and some positions won’t be backfilled. Apple is also still prepping to launch its long-rumored mixed reality headset in 2023. The company didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Many tech companies have adjusted hiring in recent weeks. Google CEO Sundar Pichai informed staff about a hiring slowdown. Meta’s chief product officer warned employees of “serious times” and has issued a hiring freeze for certain roles. Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi vowed to be “hardcore about costs” in a memo. And Bloomberg reported in April that Apple slowed Genius hiring at some of its retail stores.
