Dag Kittlaus, co-founder of the Company who released Siri on the iPhone 4S, according to Apple left from AllThingsD. Kittlaus in 2007 became the CEO of the company that developed the system and after the acquisition of Siri by Apple he was led the engineering team to implement Siri on iOS 5. His departure was planned for some time and apparently it was the fact that his family lives in Chicago and not in California and it seems that separation was in good terms.

Dag Kittlaus — the co-founder and CEO of the company that created the Siri voice control feature, which Apple launched to much acclaim recently — has left the company, according to sources. There were several reasons for the departure, which was amicable and has been planned for a while, sources said. They included Kittlaus’ family being in Chicago, a desire to take time off and an interest in brainstorming new entrepreneurial ideas.

Dag’s departure rises some questions about what Apple did with Siri for iDevice’s and this resignation of course it could have very different reasons. Within Apple there most certainly relevant and capable people to replace Dag but remains to be seen as Siri will be developed in future.
