Doug Field, who stepped down as the senior vice president of engineering at Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) last month, is returning to Apple Inc (AAPL.O), Apple told Reuters on Thursday.

Doug Field will join former colleagues at the Cupertino company where he held the role of vice president of Mac hardware, Apple has confirmed. Field was in charge of overseeing the Model 3 production line, which was plagued with operation glitches.

VentureBeat calls Project Titan Apple's "unusually open secret", with claims "that Apple has flip-flopped between advancing and scaling back the project".
