Jeff Wilcox lost to Intel – Apple loses lead Apple Silicon designer

Apple has lost the leader of its M1 development team as the company nears the end of its self-imposed two-year switch from Intel to its own Apple Silicon. Jeff Wilcox joined Apple from Intel in 2013, and he is now returning to that business as it prepares to introduce new chips.

“After an incredible eight years, I have decided to leave Apple and pursue another opportunity,” Wilcox said on LinkedIn. “It’s been a great journey, and I couldn’t be more proud of everything we’ve accomplished during my time there, culminating in the Apple Silicon shift with the M1, M1 Pro, and M1 Max SOCs and systems. All of my Apple colleagues and friends will be sorely missed.”

“I’m thrilled to announce that I have begun a new position at Intel Corporation as Intel Fellow, Design Engineering Group CTO, Client SoC Architecture,” he continued. “I am overjoyed to be returning to work with the incredible teams there to help design ground-breaking SOCs. Great things are on the way!”

Wilcox rejoined Intel in the beginning of January 2022. It’s unclear who Apple plans to replace him with as Director of Mac System Architecture.

It is also unknown whether Apple attempted to retain Wilcox. Separately, Apple has lately offered $180,000 bonuses to engineers in order to keep them from leaving.
