Apple Reshuffling Top Brass

Apple has announced executive management changes today to "encourage even more collaboration between the company’s hardware, software and services teams." Who knew they were having problems collaborating?

The company today announced that it's rejiggering its executive lineup to add extra responsibilities for some, along with the planned exit of iOS software chief Scott Forstall in 2013. A more immediate departure is John Browett, the head of Apple's retail unit, a move that appears to be sudden given that the company says it's currently seeking a replacement. Meanwhile, Jony Ive, Bob Mansfield, Eddy Cue and Craig Federighi will stay on with expanded roles.
