A former Apple Inc. manager says he is not guilty of charges that he helped engineer a multimillion-dollar kickback scheme involving suppliers of iPhone and iPod accessories.

Paul Shin Devine entered the plea in a San Jose federal court Monday after a grand jury indicted the 37-year-old Sunnyvale man last week on charges of wire fraud and conspiracy.

Authorities say Devine accepted more than $1 million in exchange for giving confidential information to Apple suppliers in Asia. Those suppliers allegedly used the information to negotiate favorable contracts with Cupertino-based Apple.

Authorities have not commented on the whereabouts of a Singapore resident named as a supplier in Devine's alleged scam.

A bail hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
