Henri Lamiraux, Apple's Vice President of Software Engineering - iOS Apps & Frameworks, has retired, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Lamiraux confirmed his departure to 9to5Mac via email.

"He says that he retired from Apple a 'couple of weeks' ago, following the release of iOS 7.0.3. Lamiraux decided a 'little while ago' that iOS 7 would be his last release…"

Lamiraux was responsible for the development of the apps that come with iOS and new feature implementation across the operating system. He worked under Scott Forstall and then with Craig Federighi after he became Senior VP of iOS and OS X.

The departure of Lamiraux is seen as significant loss for the company.

The recent major changes in the boards of Apple are the main cause behind all this shift. Tim Cook has seriously taken its hands on the boards, and Jony Ive also did great in taking control over the iOS development this year. And guess what? iOS 7 looks shits to many people.

On the other side, how many of you are still looking out for iOS 7 Jailbreak?

That's why I would include everything from ios 6 then add them to ios 7, I don't hate ios 7 but I like ios 6 icons a bit better!

maybe because USB is a standard in all other computers? What will people with inferior computers like samsung or lenovo do?

B/c you assumed lightning is crap! I used 30 pin once and it had a little more force to insert it!

Well apple did mention "the biggest change to ios since the original iphone" and now that people have the new apps they waited for, so yeah, all they have to do now is figure a way to save the draining battery issue and add old icons, siri by its voice and look, web, etc. so everyone can have ios 7 the way they want it so I will upgrade to it!

he probably realized how shitty iOS7 looks like and he want no part of any further development.
