News of Ms. Lane's retirement comes via an update to her LinkedIn profile, and not an official announcement from Apple.

Prior to her gig at Apple, Ms. Lane worked for Motorola, IBM, and the U.S. Air Force. Just as she did for Apple, Ms. Lane handled supply chain management at Motorola and IBM.

Since Apple hasn't announced Ms. Lane's retirement, it isn't a big surprise that there isn't any word yet on who will replace her.

Rita Lane handled supply chain management during the original iPad launch, subsequent iPad launches, and several Mac rollouts. Those are pretty big shoes to fill.
