It looks like Apple's Senior Vice President, Bob Mansfield, has left his post and is now working on "special projects" where he reports directly to Apple CEO Tim Cook.
Mansfield did semi-retire last year, but returned two months into his retirement. He eventually led a new division within Apple that worked on semiconductor and wireless hardware. What could Mansfield be working no now? The New York Times recently wrote that he was "engrossed" with wearable technologies, so we might see his products in the coming years.
I'm sure that with Google Glass and other wearable tech, Apple doesn't want to be left behind.
