Akhtar will be reporting to Sumbul Desai, a senior employee on the health team who's been staffing up Apple's employee health clinics, called AC Wellness. Akhtar will work with Desai on the medical clinics, according to people familiar with the hire, although he may also be involved in other projects.

For that, it received clearance from federal regulators to help alert people with a condition called Atrial Fibrillation, which is the leading cause of stroke.

"Hopefully save a lot of lives," he told CNBC in an interview in 2017, adding that the company is serious about the sector at the highest levels. "The executive team has embraced this," he said. "It's hard not to get excited."
