More specifically, according to AppleInsider, “Apple’s hardware development operations are expanding to the Orlando, Fla., area, where the company apparently plans to design, build and test custom chips for future devices.”

Obviously, this is not classified information as anybody can visit the Apple website and search for job openings. That being said, it is interesting to take note of the fact that the company is searching for both hardware and software engineers in this part of the country.

One of the job openings, for exampled, is seeking a model engineer that would specialize in “modeling GPU hardware.” It is thought that these new employees will be working on “Apple’s custom-designed silicon that powers its iOS devices, including the iPhone and iPad.”

Additionally, Electronic Arts’ Tiburon game development studio is located in the city.

The company is dedicated to hiring the best employee for every job, and it is safe that they will stick with this goal regardless of the location.
