Another iOS Executive Bails on Apple
It appears that fall is the season for executives to leave the Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) tree. Software engineering executive Henri Lamiraux became the latest prominent Apple employee to reveal that he was leaving the Cupertino-based company, according to unnamed sources cited by 9to5Mac and Lamiraux’s own LinkedIn profile page. Lamiraux told 9to5Mac that he retired from Apple a “couple of weeks” ago after previously deciding that iOS 7 would be his last project.
According to Lamiraux’s LinkedIn profile page, the executive has worked at Apple in various capacities for the past 23 years. He began his career at Apple as a Mac OS/OS X software engineer in 1990 and finished as the Vice President of Software Engineering for iOS Apps and Frameworks.
9to5Mac’s sources described Lamiraux as a well-respected and vitally important asset to Apple’s iOS division. The longtime Apple employee’s iOS responsibilities included application development, feature-implementation, bug-fixing, and feature distribution to consumers. According to 9to5Mac, Lamiraux also handled the frameworks within iOS that allowed developers to build their own applications.
