Apple is reportedly preparing to leave the confines of its Cupertino-based campus and sprawl into surrounding cities.

Apple purchased a 43-acre development site across the road from San Jose’s airport for $US138 million, according to a report from Nathan Donato-Weinstein at the Silicon Valley Business Journal.
