Apple today updated its dedicated leadership website to add a profile for John Ternus, reflecting his new role as Apple's Senior Vice President of Hardware Engineering.

Apple in January announced that former Hardware Engineering SVP Dan Riccio was transitioning to a new role to focus on an unspecified project, and that Ternus would take over.

Riccio has been removed from the executive page as he's now a vice president of engineering, and while Apple has not said what he's working on, Bloomberg recently said that he is focusing on Apple's AR/VR headsets.

John Ternus initially joined Apple as part of the Product Design team in 2001, and has been a vice president of Hardware Engineering since 2013. From his biography on the leadership page:
John Ternus is Apple's senior vice president of Hardware Engineering, reporting to CEO Tim Cook. John leads all hardware engineering, including the teams behind iPhone, iPad, Mac, AirPods, and more.

John joined Apple's Product Design team in 2001 and has been a vice president of Hardware Engineering since 2013. Throughout his tenure at Apple, John has overseen hardware engineering work on a variety of groundbreaking products including every generation and model of iPad, the latest iPhone lineup, and AirPods. He has been a key leader in the ongoing transition of the Mac to Apple silicon.

Prior to Apple, John worked as a mechanical engineer at Virtual Research Systems. He holds a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania.
Apple CEO Tim Cook in January said that Ternus' "deep expertise and wide breadth of experience" would make him a "bold and visionary leader" of Apple's Hardware Engineering teams.

He did a good job working on the 2019 Mac Pro and was great with the Keynote. He and Federighi should do more presentations with more new blood and leave Cook, etc on the sidelines.

Here’s hoping he brings more vision to the Mac.
I would say Cook has always been on the sidelines relative to Jobs. I’m sure Cook knows he will never match the presence of Jobs, and I’m also sure he doesn’t want to — so he sets up the show and passes off to others.

I do prefer quality over quantity though, so I wish they stick with Fed, Ternus, and Joz. I like listening to Srouji too. The executive team looks pretty solid throughout.

Jeff Williams is good, calm presence but also knowledgeable.

Looks like Eddy Cue is #3 in charge.

I'm rather amused by the syntax of their various job titles.

Take Katherine Adams - Senior Vice President and General Counsel. That's because she has two job titles, as a SVP and as General Counsel. Same with Luca Maestri - Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. He's a SVP and he is the CFO. Not the use of the and to denote two job titles.

Then you have Deirdre O’Brien - Senior Vice President, Retail + People. That's one job titles, as a SVP who is responsible for two areas... for retail and for people. Note the use of the plus to denote two areas.

Then you have Eddy Cue - Senior Vice President, Internet Software and Services. With an and. SVP of Internet Software, and also 'Services'. What services does he provide???

Apple’s pricing is really competitive. At $999 in 2021 dollars, the M1 MacBook Air might be the best value product they’ve ever sold.
That's just the entry modal. They then need to do the same for ALL modals across the product range and offer fair competitive pricing on upgrade paths that is consistently priced for different modal configurations for components like SSD blades, RAM and discreet GPUs where applicable.
