Shortly after the release of Apple’s iOS 7.0.3 update, Henri Lamiraux, the company’s iOS Engineering Vice President, has decided to retire. The information has been allegedly confirmed in an email to 9t05mac by Lamiraux himself, and there’s his LinkedIn profile to back the information up.
According to Lamiraux, the decision to leave was taken a little while ago; iOS 7 was his last release. He has started working at Apple 23 years ago as a Software Engineer for Mac OS, coming from Electronic Arts. Lamiraux worked with Craig Federighi as well as Scott Forstall and he was mostly responsible for applications that shipped with iOS; he also managed bug-fixing processes and feature distribution to consumers.
