As Apple moves toward the end of a two-year transition from Intel to its own Apple Silicon, the company lost the head of its M1 development team.
Jeff Wilcox originally joined Apple from Intel in 2013 and is now back in the company working on new processors. “After eight great years, I decided to leave Apple and look for another chance,” Wilcox wrote on his LinkedIn page. “It’s been an incredible journey and I can’t be more proud of what we’ve done during my time here that has resulted in a move from Apple Silicon to M1, M1 Pro and M1 Max systems and SOCs.
I will miss all my colleagues and friends at Apple very much. “I am delighted to announce that I have an Engineering Group CTO, Client SoC Architecture at Intel Corporation,” he said. Big things are yet to come!
Wilcox returned to Intel in early January 2022. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
