Apple announced on Monday that Dan Riccio, senior vice president of hardware engineering, will be transferred to “focus on a new project.” In his new role, he will report to CEO Tim Cook.
Richio previously served as senior vice president in charge of hardware engineering, responsible for the electrical engineering of Apple products, including the iPhone. In its statement, Apple did not mention what projects Rizio will work on. Since 2012, Riccio has been a member of the “executive team” of the company reporting to Cook.
Riccio said in the statement: “Next, I look forward to doing what I like best-focusing all my time and energy at Apple on creating new and wonderful things. This is what I am most excited about. ”
Apple rarely discusses future products, but in recent years, the technology giant has been developing electric cars and virtual reality and augmented reality headsets.
After Richio takes charge of the new project, Vice President John Ternus will take over his previous job. In recent years, Tenos has gradually emerged in Apple. At the live conference held last year, he was a key demonstrator of Apple’s transition from Intel processors to its own M1 notebook processor.
