Working at Apple is like Fight Club. You don't talk about it. So the only people who do talk about it seem to be disgruntled ex-employees and former job candidates. It leads to a distorted reputation at times. (Disclaimer: you're not actually allowed to be without clothing of some sort on the lower half of your body. Though I wouldn't be surprised if "no naked ass" was the only entry in the dress code, from some of the getups I've seen).

I will in general echo Voyager's description of coding and/or creative tech work. It's very non-linear. Creativity, for whatever reason, doesn't seem to function well in a gray box between the hours of 9-5. Engineers have a particular environment they prefer. So do designers & creatives. Not because we feel like being a pain in the ass, but because it's what makes us most productive.
