Apple seeks help for iPhone OS on 'new platforms'

updated 05:40 pm EST, Mon February 22, 2010

Company moving beyond iPad, iPod, iPhone?

A new job listing may back notions that Apple has broad plans for the iPhone OS. The company is currently searching for an engineering manager, who will eventually be put to work in the company's hometown of Cupertino. The person should specifically be responsible for a team handling low levels of the iPhone OS, including the "bring-up of new hardware platforms." Candidates are therefore expected to have deep experience in areas like Unix kernels and ARM-based systems-on-chip.

The new platforms mentioned are mostly likely updated iPods, iPads and iPhones, although just the iPod and iPhone are cited, and then only tangentially. The ambiguity could in fact leave room for an unannounced platform, though what it would be is unknown. One possibility is an updated Apple TV, since the device is relatively simple but potentially ready to benefit from iPad-style media playback controls. The present Apple TV hardware has not been updated in any significant fashion since May of 2007.
