Apple appoints interim head of public relations

Steve Dowling replaces Katie Cotton

Apple has appointed a new interim head of public relations in Steve Dowling, the former senior director of corporate public relations.

The iPhone creator confirmed the move to Re/Code though no comment on the decision was given.

Dowling, who has been with Apple since 2003, steps into the space left by Katie Cotton who retired from her role as head of PR in May. She had been with the company for 18 years.

Re/Code also reported in June that "CEO Tim Cook is overseeing the search, aiming to find some high-profile external candidates for consideration. And he's paying particular attention to those he believes could put a friendlier, more approachable face on Apple's public relations efforts."
