Apple’s had a couple of public humiliations in recent years — AirPower, the MacBook’s questionable butterfly keyboard, and the iPhone slowdown saga come to mind — however it’s been a minute since the original tech scandal of “Antennagate,” when the iPhone 4 tended to drop calls if people held it in certain ways.

Today, The Information is detailing (and AppleInsider is confirming) that Apple VP of engineering and wireless specialist Rubén Caballero has left the organization, which is notable for several reasons.

In the first place, The Information reports he was the driving force behind Apple’s in-house 5G modem endeavors — in light of the fact that indeed, it appears that Apple is attempting to design its very own 5G modem to contend with Qualcomm. everybody can’t read a lot into his flight in light of the fact that 5G is ludicrously messy right now and Apple’s at the eye of the tempest, so there could have been any number of purposes behind him to get pushed out or choose to proceed onward.

As indicated by Reuters, he may have really lost his position of authority in January when Apple moved its modem endeavors in-house, months before the unexpected Apple-Qualcomm settlement that saw Intel lose its opportunity at a spot inside the first 5G iPhone. What’s more, in February, Apple supposedly poached a 5G leader from Intel too.

Be that as it may, second, Caballero happens to be a similar antenna expert who allegedly cautioned Steve Jobs that the iPhone 4’s antenna design may be inclined to dropping calls, and he’s evidently been ascending the positions from that point forward. His LinkedIn page expresses he’s been at the organization for more than 14 years, and a 2018 profile at CNET en Español recommends he and his group have contacted each wireless element of every Apple device since.
