Apple has paid unusually high stock bonuses to some engineers in order to retain talents and avoid employees from changing jobs to technology company competitors such as Facebook's parent company meta platform. People familiar with the matter said that last week, apple informed some engineers in the chip design, hardware department and selected software and operation departments and paid them the off cycle bonus. These bonuses will be paid in the form of restricted shares for four years to encourage them to stay at Apple. These bonuses start at about $50000 and in some cases up to $180000.
