Just in time for WWDC, drone videographers Duncan Sinfield and Matthew Roberts have uploaded new drone flyover videos of Apple Park.

The videos show that landscaping is continuing on the spectacular site and more people than ever are working there. Most astonishing of all is a glimpse of the 24-hour window cleaning crew, reminding us of just how massive Apple’s shiny new headquarters actually is. Check out the videos below.

Both Sinfield and Roberts have been helping to document the creation of Apple Park since its earliest days. However, increasingly Apple has been cracking down on videographers who want to fly their drones over the site.

In one recent blog post Sinfield noted that, “Security at Apple Park generally responds in two white Prius’s to my precise take-off locations in 10 minutes or less. While this is speculation, my instincts tell me that Apple is tracking all drones in the vicinity of the campus with sophisticated radio frequency technology from companies such as DeDrone (a San Francisco-based aerospace security company).”

In other words, we shouldn’t expect quite so many flyover videos now that the campus is actually being used for, you know, real work. Speaking of which, this is totally the gig to score if you want consistent work as a window cleaner, right?
