Apple has decided to slash hundreds of jobs in Silicon Valley, an ominous disclosure that suggests the tech industry’s staffing cutbacks have yet to run their course in the Bay Area.

The tech titan has revealed plans to chop more than 600 jobs in the South Bay, according to a new official filing with the state Employment Development Department.

Cupertino-based Apple’s job cuts mark the iPhone maker’s first officially disclosed layoffs in the Bay Area since tech companies began to unleash layoffs at an elevated level starting in 2022.

Apple has decided to slash 614 jobs in Santa Clara, the company’s WARN notice with the EDD shows.

The tech company described the layoffs as “permanent,” according to the WARN letter Apple sent to the state’s labor agency.

The job cuts were scheduled to occur on or around May 27 of this year, the state government filing showed. The EDD reported that it processed the Apple WARN letter on April 2.

An estimated 371 of the 614 Apple layoffs in Santa Clara were slated to occur at a company office building at 3689 Kifer Road.

In 2022, 2023 and so far in 2024, tech companies have disclosed plans to jettison well over 38,000 jobs in the Bay Area, according to this news organization’s review of hundreds of WARN filings posted by the state EDD.
