The game of thrones among Apple’s executive elite continues on news that current hardware engineering lead, Dan Riccio, is moving into a new role in which he is, “creating something new and wonderful” at Apple.
What is new? What is wonderful?
Riccio, whose full title was SVP Hardware Engineering, becomes VP Engineering with John Ternus taking the SVP Engineering seat.
Riccio has been with Apple since 1998 and became the hardware engineering lead at Apple in 2012. Ternus joined Apple’s product design team in 2001 and led the iPhone 12 design team.
That’s the job titles out the way.
So, beyond the career moves, what seems to be in play here?
