Siri Co-Creator Adam Cheyer Reportedly Leaving Apple

by Abdelrahman Mohamed on September 11, 2012

When first Apple announced iPhone 4S in 2011, there comes Siri one of the most intelligence voice assistant, Steve Jobs first had a talk with  Siri co-founder Dag Kittlaus one day and made an offer to buy his work and team. And the rest, as they say, is history. And just after a few months  Kittlaus left Apple for personal reasons and today we have got a  new report from Bloomberg which says that Adam Cheyer, another co-founder and member of the Siri team, has also recently decided to leave the company…

Here’s what was said by Bloomberg report:

“Adam Cheyer, an engineer who helped build the Siri voice-recognition software that was acquired by Apple Inc, is no longer working for the iPhone maker, according to three people familiar with the situation.

Cheyer, a Siri co-founder and its former vice president of engineering, left recently after working in Apple’s mobile software group, said one of the people, who all asked not to be identified as the matter is confidential.”

By the days Siri became one of the most useful features that Apple users are using it daily when they are at work, home.. Tim Cook the CEO of Apple confirmed that Apple has a lot of people working on Siri. Also, the company is about to roll out an update to the assistant that will allow it to answer more questions. And it’s even partnering with carmakers to integrate it into vehicles.

What I want to say that Siri changed a lot of things.. We don’t know why would Adam leave Apple, but we will keep an eye on this important thing..
