Apple is widely considered the most secretive company on earth, so any chance to get even a tiny peek behind its walls is a rare one. When you visit Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California, you can’t get past the gift shop without a special friend. If you’re lucky, you’ll get treated to a delicious lunch at the company’s Caffe Macs. That leaves the rest of Infinite Loop up to your imagination.
A neat service called Worldcam uses Instagram’s GPS data to gather all of the photos shared from a specific location. We’ve collected some rare shots from inside and around Apple’s top secret HQ:
