Two Apple engineers work on iPhone components in a lab

Our engineers have created some tough acts to follow, and they continue to lead us to innovative breakthroughs. Because they’re driven not by what would be easy, but by what would be amazing.

The daughter of two doctors, Divya learned at an early age that healthiness was closely linked to happiness. She brings this same passion to her role as a manager on the Human Interface Devices team. Divya and her team are responsible for developing the unique sensors on Apple Watch. “We built Apple Watch to continuously deliver accurate heart rate readings, whether you’re swimming, running or wheelchair racing.” Her job may be planning the feature road map for these sensors, but what she really does is help people become healthier and happier.

As the manager of an acoustic prototyping group at Apple, Suzie explores new ways to push the limits of audio technologies. While working on Apple’s HomePod, for example, she developed some of the many prototypes that helped define the precise placement of the tweeter array ports, to eliminate poor audio quality caused by table reflections. The goal was to achieve consistent, high-fidelity sound for listeners, even as they move around the listening space. “Time and again, our teams go to a level of care and detail that I wouldn’t have thought possible before working at Apple. We raise the bar with every project. Which is exactly what our customers expect from us.”
