Cupertino building dept. approved Steve Jobs Theater Occupancy
Apple invited members of the press to the new Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park on Aug. 31, but the City of Cupertino didn't actually sign off on allowing people into the building until a day later, documents reveal.
Apple applied for a Temporary Occupancy Permit for the Steve Jobs Theater on Aug. 8, VentureBeatdiscovered. A few weeks later, on Aug. 31, Apple sent out invitations for its Sept. 12 event.
"Let's meet at our place," the invitation read. "Please join us for the first-ever event at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino."
Clearly, Apple was confident that the city would sign off on the new building. But approval wouldn't come for another day, as Albert Salvador of the Cupertino building department didn't officially approve occupancy within the structure on Sept. 1.
Photos have shown the theater still under construction as recently as Sept. 1.
The city's approval mans that Apple has the all-clear to host members of the press for Tuesday's event, where it will unveil the highly anticipated iPhone X with OLED display. The temporary permit also approves the use of the lobby for a hands-on demonstration area, where attendees will presumably get their first opportunity to use the iPhone X.
