Apple’s Scott Forstall and John Browett to leave firm

BBC:

Apple has announced a major shake-up of its management, with two senior executives to leave the company.

The announcement follows embarrassing problems with its new mapping software and disappointing quarterly results.

Scott Forstall, head of its iPhone software, will leave next year. He will serve as an adviser to chief executive Tim Cook in the interim.

Head of retail John Browett, the former Dixons boss, is also leaving after just nine months in the job.

Apple said the moves were a way to increase collaboration across its hardware, software and services businesses.

The management changes come a little over a year into Mr Cook’s reign as chief executive.

The technology in question is Java, a programming language that has been around since the 1990s.
