Apple Loses Lead Designer of iPhone & iPad Chips

According to a report from CNET, Gerard Williams III, who was the lead designer for Apple’s custom A-Series chips, left Apple last month after working for them for 9 years.

Williams worked on all of the A-Series chips, starting with the A7 chip in 2013, found in the iPhone 5S. The A7 was Apple’s first 64-Bit chip. The last chip he worked on was the A12X found in the latest iPad Pro which was released on the 30th of October 2018. According to Apple, their A12X chip makes the iPad Pro faster than 92% of the world’s computers. Before Williams started to work at Apple, he worked at ARM for 12 years. In the 9 years that Williams worked for Apple, he was mentioned on 60 patents and his work will probably still be seen on future chips for Apple.
