Henri Lamiraux knew that his time at Apple was numbered. The Vice President of Engineering for iOS at Apple already hinted that iOS 7 would be his last. A quick look at his Facebook page and LinkedIn profile reveals that he has happily retired last month. Lamiraux also confirmed to 9to5Mac that he retired a couple of weeks ago.
During his 23-year tenure at Apple, the French software engineer developed applications that come with iOS, as well managed bug-fixing processes and frameworks. According to sources at Apple, Lamiraux's role became even more crucial when Craig Federighi became the Senior Vice President for both iOS and OS X. He basically became the head of iOS, sources added.
Before heading to the iOS division, Lamiraux worked as a software engineer for OS X, eventually becoming the division's director. In 2005, he was among the few engineers to have been able to work on the first iPhone.
