Another round of phone interview?

I interviewed one round at Apple (technical phone interview) which went well and then guess what?
I received a response from the recruiter, not for onsite but another round of phone interview.
Is it common to have 2 phone rounds? What shall I expect in the second round? Will there be an on-site interview if this goes well?

    2 phones interviews are a standard and its easy to pass. Onsite is where it gets intense. They ask medium to hard question every 30 min and expect you to solve it in that timeframe.

      By the way beware of new grad interviewers like SDE1s. They are more focused on showing off how much they are better than you by giving you a ridiculously hard question. And they expect you to solve the problem in 30 minutes. Senior engineers are more reasonable.

      What was the time frame of your onsite? When did you checkin, checkout and how long was each round? Were they all leet code+system design questions or anything new?

      Its 5 hours including 1 hour lunch. Each hour, two interviewers comes in and asks you 2 different questions. So its a total of 8 system design / coding questions (each 30min)

    My second phone interview, after a technical phone interview, was with the hiring manager. Maybe yours is too?

    30 mins for a round is short by 15 mins :( I hope they won't have too much of the initial banter eh

      Yeah 30 min each round was intense. Now I’m doing it again. Hopefully I don’t get these new grad interviewers this time.
