Angela Ahrendts has officially taken the reins of Apple’s new Senior Vice President of Retail and Online Stores. Ahrendts’s last day as the CEO of Burberry was yesterday, and Apple’s website has been updated to reflect Ahrendts beginning her work at Apple today. Her biography, which can be found on Apple’s executive leadership website, explains her role at Apple.
Last week, Tim Cook announced that Ahrendts would “join the Apple team” this week, but the Apple CEO did not specify an exact start date. We understand that Ahrendts is already planning a presentation to retail staff regarding her plans for Apple retail.
Apple announced Ahrendts appointment last fall, and Tim Cook told Apple employees via an internal memo that Ahrendts is the “best person in the world for this role.” Her role is unique in that this is the first time that Apple will have a Senior Vice President covering both retail and online stores.

The bumper is made of ultra-thin aerospace aluminum and manufactured with chamfered edges; the same sort that the iPhone 5 boasts. It weighs just 16 grams, so it won’t be turning your slim and light iPhone into something hard to carry around.
With iPhone 5′s aluminum body and redesigned antenna layout, Apple didn’t see the need to make a new bumper for its latest flagship smartphone. However, a small company called Designed by m took it upon itself to fill the void and created the AL13.
Check out the introductory video of the AL13 bumper and see its makers reveal all details about the product.
The case will be available in red, gray, black and special Kickstarter green for early backers. Keep in mind that the AL13 will reduce your signal by 5-10%, so it’s probably not recommended to those who live in areas with spotty coverage.
AL13 Prototype Front for iPhone 4 and iPhone 5
For a limited time only, the AL13 iPhone 5 bumper sells at $45 a pop, a special price for early Kickstarter backers. When it starts selling in April this year, the regular price of the bumper will be $80.
