Apple’s 20-year head of developer relations retires ahead of Epic App Store trial

Apple CEO Steve Jobs, twenty years ago had poached Ron Okamoto from Adobe to be the Vice President (VP) of the developer relations and help develop App Store later. Now, he has retired, just a few months prior to the App Store going on trial.

Mark Gurman spotted at Bloomberg that Okamoto was listed as a possible witness in that App Store trial and that the court documents explain him as the Ex-Vice President of the developer relations and not the present one. Bloomberg gas now reported that product marketing executive, Susan Prescott, who began becoming a public face of the iPhone maker in 2015, has replaced Okamoto.

As of now, Okamoto still remains to be deposed during the trial, however perhaps for not more than one hour. He will likely be testifying about policies and business models of the App Store, how it functions when compared to creating for Apple macOS and transformation of the app software business.
