iOS Vice President of Engineering Henri Lamiraux has left Apple, as confirmed by his LinkedIn profile. Lamiraux was reportedly in charge of developing iOS applications, leading feature implementation, and managing bug-fixing, among other duties; his position was underneath Senior Vice President Craig Federighi, who has recently become one of Apple’s public faces for iOS releases. Lamiraux was also listed as an inventor on a key Apple patent covering a great portion of the iOS interface. He departed the company some weeks ago, after the release of iOS 7.0.3; the reasons are unknown. [via 9to5Mac]
