Apple Posts New Job Listings For Its Orlando-Based iOS GPU Development Team

Apple is continuing to build up its iOS GPU development team in Orlando, Fla., according to a number of new job listings. In total, six new positions are being advertised at Apple's jobs Web page, and roles include a Project Manager for "Apple SoC Embedded Silicon design." As a reminder, earlier this year we heard that Apple had been building a GPU team based in Orlando, Fla., and a number of employees were said to have been headhunted from Advanced Micro Devices (AMD). The team is expected to design and develop next-generation graphics chips for Apple's future iDevices. Now, however, the Cupertino, Calif. company appears to be further increasing this team. As AppleInsider reports:
Most significantly, Apple is seeking a site manager for its Central Florida-based operations that will oversee what is referred to as the company's "Orlando GPU team." Another position seeks a program manager for "Apple SoC Embedded Silicon design." Apple describes its Orlando operations as a "world-class" graphics intellectual property development team.
Apple has introduced the world's first ever 64-bit mass-market smartphone processor with its Apple A7, and the chip makes impressive graphical feats - such as those demonstrated in Infinity Blade III - possible to perform on an iPhone 5s. The handset's M7 coprocessor also allows for more complex location-based tasks, and a number of iOS applications, including Argus and Strava Run, have been updated accordingly. We'll keep you updated with further information as we receive it.
