Hugo Fiennes

Former iPhone Hardware Manager

Hugo Fiennes began building hardware and software for early ARM-based computers in the late 1980s, and he has been making useful things ever since. After launching the first in-car MP3 player—the empeg—in 1998, he worked on many generations of MP3 players at Rio before joining Apple to lead the AP hardware team through the first four generations of the iPhone. Fiennes later went on to design and architect the hardware for the Nest Thermostat before co-founding Electric Imp which makes secure IoT look a lot easier than it actually is.
