Major leadership shakeup at Apple’s Acoustic Division, Indian-origin Ruchir Dave new top boss

In a significant restructuring exercise within Apple’s Acoustic Division, Apple has reshuffled the leadership team responsible for pioneering audio features across its product spectrum, including AirPods and Macs.

Gary Graves, who has steered Apple’s Acoustics for nearly 13 years as Vice President, is set to step down from his position, as per reports from Bloomberg. Replacing Geaves is Ruchir Dave, a seasoned Apple veteran with over 14 years of experience with the company.

Dave, who is of Indian-origin started working with Apple in 2009 when he joined the Acoustics Engineer team. He gradually ascended the ranks to become the Senior Director in March 2021. Hailing from Gujarat, Dave studied at Lalbhai Dalpatbhai College of Engineering, Ahmedabad, where he graduated in 1998.

Under Dave’s leadership, Apple’s Acoustics Division comprises approximately 300 employees and remains integral to the company’s audio-centric products, such as HomePods, AirPods, and speakers. This division spearheads advancements in sound and microphone technologies, pivotal to the success of Apple’s renowned audio line.

While the transition in leadership hasn’t been formally announced by Apple, reports from Bloomberg cite insider sources, preferring anonymity due to the private nature of the development. Internally, news of Dave’s appointment has been circulated among Apple employees.

Notably, Apple recently introduced significant changes to its flagship audio product, AirPods, abandoning the lightning port in favor of the widely adopted USB Type C charging port. This move has been well-received, offering users enhanced convenience in charging their devices without additional cables.
