Following up on a late June announcement that Apple senior vice president of hardware engineering Bob Mansfield would retire, transitioning his responsibilities to vice president Dan Riccio, Apple unexpectedly announced today that Mansfield will remain at Apple, though Riccio will assume most of his leadership responsibilities for Apple’s hardware engineering teams. As a new senior vice president of Hardware Engineering, Riccio will lead the Mac, iPhone, iPad and iPod engineering teams, reporting directly to Apple CEO Tim Cook and serving as a member of Apple’s executive management team. According to Apple, Mansfield will be working “on future products,” also reporting to Cook, though his biography on Apple’s web site indicates that he is keeping his prior title, and is listed as overseeing the Mac hardware team. Apple also announced that Craig Federighi, vice president of Mac Software Engineering, is being promoted to a senior VP role with the company.

Update August 31, 2012: Apple has updated its web site to reflect that Mansfield remains a Senior Vice President, working on future products, and no longer leads Apple’s hardware engineering teams.
