After Wilcox, Philip is the second Apple chip engineer to leave the company, but it is unclear whether there are any precise reasons behind this choice, or whether they can impact on the development of Cupertino’s future chips.

Meanwhile, Filippo has moved to Microsoft, where he will deal with Azure servers, more specifically Redmond’s server chip architecture. There seems therefore to be no connection between the recruitment of Apple’s engineer and Microsoft’s transition to proprietary chips, which according to rumors of corridor will be carried out precisely in an attempt to emulate Cupertino’s house.
