Sam Jadallah, Apple’s head of Home Services, left the company last week after two years. Jadallah was reportedly leading some of Apple’s work on smart home initiatives and HomeKit. So, Apple may on the lookout for a new head right in the middle of its refocus on its smart home platform.

Jadallah announced his departure on LinkedIn, but didn’t state any reason other than he was moving on and was “it was a treat to be an entrepreneur within Apple and to create products at scale”

Apple hired Jadallah back in 2019 and before that he headed up luxury smart lock company Otto. He also worked for Microsoft as a corporate Vice President during the 90s.

Jadallah’s departure from Apple is interesting because Apple seems to be in the middle of a refocus on HomeKit. Since Jadallah joined Apple, the company has made several enhancements, which include HomeKit Secure Video, adaptive lighting and improvements to automations.

Jadallah departure from Apple could be for many reasons and it would be unfair to speculate. But it would seem Apple is aiming toward Apple TV, HomePod and HomeKit under one name. We have found evidence of this direction in recent job listings referencing HomeOS.

Of course, given the time of year, we will not see any major announcements from Apple about the future software and hardware roadmap. So we will have to wait until the middle of 2022 and possibly WWDC 22 to find out if this direction is true.
