SVP, Hardware Engineering
As senior vice president of hardware engineering at Apple, John Ternus has a heavy hand on at least one of the devices you probably have in your hand right now. He reports directly to Tim Cook, and leads the teams that make the iPhone, iPad, Mac, AirPods, and more. Ternus led the team responsible for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro and has been instrumental in moving the Mac to Apple silicon. He was promoted to this role this year, replacing Dan Riccio.
