Chip Creator for iPhone May Become Intel Head




Why do we love the iPhone? Everyone probably has their own answer to this question. But no one will argue that the Apple smartphone is the result of the well-coordinated work of dozens of departments that develop unique components. We all know Johnny Quince, Craig Federigi – these Apple executives are responsible for the design and operating systems, respectively. But about one important figure in the company from Cupertino, until now, not so much was known. We are talking about the head of the department for the development of Apple processors – Johnny Srugi.

He came to the post of vice president of hardware in 2015, and Apple has been working at Apple for 11 years. Steve Jobs personally invited Srudji to create a chip for the iPhone 4. Subsequently, Sougey created the A5X and A6X chips. He also had a hand in subsequent Apple processors, including those with 64-bit architecture.

Apple processors are currently being developed at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, more than 150 employees led by Srugi work on them sweaty. But the company may lose its key employee: according to Axios, Intel is considering his candidacy for the post of CEO.

Being a vice-president and head of an entire corporation are two different things, so it is possible that Srugi decides to move on. Although Intel does not comment on the emergence of a new CEO, everything indicates his search. Sruji himself worked closely with Intel when he created processors for the iPhone.

In June last year, the head of Intel was dismissed from the company for an office romance, and since then the company has not found a permanent CEO. The position of Acting CEO of Intel Corp. took R. Swan, who previously worked at the company as a financial director.
