Apple Shuffles Leadership for Audio Products: What Does It Mean for the Future of AirPods and Other Audio Devices?

Report from Mark Gurman, Apple has made significant changes to the leadership team responsible for audio products such as AirPods, Macs, and other devices. The VP of Acoustics, Gary Geaves, who has been a key player in the development of Apple’s in-house audio products, is stepping down and will become an advisor to the company. His team will now report to Matt Costello, the executive in charge of Beats headphones.

While this may not seem like a big change on the surface, it has raised concerns among Apple enthusiasts who believe that the company’s in-house audio products are far superior to those produced by the Beats division. It’s no secret that Apple’s acquisition of Beats was a controversial move, and many are worried that this latest management change could signal a shift in the company’s focus away from high-quality audio products.

However, it’s important to note that Ruchir Davé, a top deputy, will be taking over as the new leader of the audio team. Davé has been with Apple for over a decade and has played a key role in the development of many of the company’s audio products. He is widely respected within the company and is seen as a strong leader who will continue to prioritize quality and innovation in Apple’s audio products.

So, what does this leadership change mean for the future of AirPods and other audio devices from Apple? While it’s impossible to say for sure, it’s clear that the company is committed to maintaining its position as a leader in the audio industry. With Davé at the helm of the audio team, it’s likely that Apple will continue to produce high-quality audio products that meet the demands of its customers.
