This testing was being done in the outskirts of the city where a shell company that goes by the name of Sixty Eight Research was handling the necessary operations.
Nobody knows exactly how long the building has been leased by Apple, however as per sources, until 2013, Pepsi was operating there and ever since then the building was vacant. Built in the year 1957, the building sits on a plot of 5 acres and the structure of the building looks more like a warehouse instead of a regular office building.
The lease details are still unclear, however the claims that are made by the reports however what is known is the fact that ad per what has been mentioned on the lease that was submitted in the month of January hinted on the fact that the company does not have any kind of plans or intentions to make any kind of change to the building.
