INTERN: Apple, Designer, Prototyping Intern


Designer, Prototyping Intern 

Imagine what you could do here. At Apple, great ideas have a way of becoming amazing products, services, and customer experiences very quickly. Bring passion and dedication to your job and there’s no telling what you could accomplish.

Prototyping is an exploratory design team. We explore what new technologies might bring to our current and future products. It’s our job to invent and propose new features and sometimes entirely new products. Over the past decade we have incubated products like iPad, Pencil, and the Apple TV Siri Remote. We pioneered force and haptics for Multi-touch Trackpads, iPhone, and Apple Watch. We express our ideas through pictures, animation, video and code.

Here is what you would do:


We come up with novel ideas for how new technologies can improve the user experience. You should have a passion for creating new things and running with ideas.

Visual Design

From quick sketching to polished pixel-perfect and everything in between. Capable of designing beautiful and coherent interfaces in a wide range of styles, on screen or as printed materials.

Interaction Design

We strive design actions that are discoverable, and easy to perform, with good feedback. You should be interested in what goes where on screen and the details of how everything responds from touch down through touch up. Our work often goes beyond traditional patterns and elements.

Motion Design

We use animation to explore our ideas further.  You should be able to express your concepts and interactions beyond the still picture.


We work with people all over Apple: interface designers, industrial designers, engineers, marketing, and executives. You should enjoy working in a studio environment and participating in individual and group critiques.


A big part of what we do is sharing our work with others and gathering feedback. You should be comfortable speaking to your work in front of small and large groups.


You must be enrolled in a degree seeking program in a related field of study, graduating on or after August 2020 (recent grads not applicable).

Apple is an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer that is committed to inclusion and diversity. We also take affirmative action to offer employment and advancement opportunities to all applicants, including minorities, women, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities.
