Apple's iPhone and Watch Design Head to Depart in February

Updated: Jan 5

[Edited] In a significant development for Apple, the executive leading design for the iPhone and smartwatch, Tang Tan, is set to leave the company in February, according to Bloomberg News.

This departure follows the recent news of Steve Hotelling, who oversaw iPhone screen and touch ID technology, also leaving the company.


Tang Tan, who currently holds the position of Vice President of Product Design at Apple, will be leaving behind a number of elevated roles for some of his deputies, as reported by Bloomberg. The departure of such a key figure in Apple's design team raises questions about the future direction of the iPhone and Apple Watch.


Apple has not yet responded to requests for comment from Reuters regarding this news. However, it has been reported that Richard Dinh, the head of iPhone product design, will now report directly to John Ternus, who serves as the Senior Vice President of Hardware Engineering. This restructuring suggests that Apple is taking steps to ensure a smooth transition and maintain continuity in its design processes.


In addition, Bloomberg also revealed that Kate Bergeron, a hardware engineering executive responsible for Mac teams, will be taking over the design of the Apple Watch. This indicates that Apple is placing experienced individuals in key positions to ensure the ongoing success and innovation of their products.
