Apple's vice president of cloud engineering, Michael Abbott, is stepping down in April, according to a new report from Bloomberg. Abbott is in charge of iCloud and infrastructure for services like iMessage and FaceTime.

The executive, Michael Abbott, is stepping down in April, according to people with knowledge of the matter, who asked not to be identified because the move isn't public. Abbott will be the second top lieutenant to services chief Eddy Cue to leave this year, joining a growing list of company vice presidents who have departed the iPhone maker in late 2022 and early 2023.

Abbot also runs the company's platform that powers key communication services, Find My, Emergency SOS, CloudKit, privacy and security engineering, and more. Once he departs, his responsibilities will be taken over by Jeff Robbin, one of Apple's most senior engineering leaders who has been credit with creating iTunes.


Notably, Abbot's departure follows that of Peter Stern, another Cue deputy. Stern was seen as a possible successor to Eddy Cue, running many components of Apple's services business. He left the company in January.
