NEW YORK (AP) - Apple says the head of its store operations is leaving after just six months on the job. In addition, the long-serving head of its iPhone software development operations is exiting.
Retail head John Browett was the CEO of British electronics chain Dixons before joining Apple. The Cupertino, Calif., company didn’t provide a reason for his departure. The stores will report to CEO Tim Cook while the company looks for a replacement, Apple says.
Scott Forstall was senior vice president of iOS software and joined Apple in 1997 with its purchase of Steve Jobs’ NeXT startup. The company credits him as one of the original architects of Mac OS X. Craig Federighi, who is now in charge of the Mac OS, will add iOS to his responsibilities, Apple says.
