NEW YORK (AP) -- Tony Fadell, senior vice president of Apple Inc.'s iPod division, is reducing his role at the company and will serve as an adviser to Chief Executive Steve Jobs, the computer and gadget maker said Tuesday.
Mark Papermaster, a former IBM Corp. vice president, will replace him and serve as senior vice president of device hardware engineering, reporting to Jobs. Papermaster will lead the iPod and iPhone hardware engineering teams.
Fadell was part of the executive team involved in developing the popular iPhone.
In addition, Fadell's wife, Danielle Lambert, is leaving Apple as vice president of human resources at the end of the year after a successor is in place.
