Legendary Design guru Jony Ive now runs Apple software, too (says Codesign’s Mark Wilson)



The new Apple

In case you missed out…

Masked by a gigantic Frankenstorm in the big apple, a management shake-up at the tech giant may usher in a new era of more unified devices for Apple.

Apple also ushered into becoming more like a conventional big company with making big, irresponsible decisions such as the counterintuitive iCloud service, centralising data that better be kept decentralised.

The story is less about Scott Forstall being out than Jony Ive being in, says Wilson.



Back to business

Ive will provide leadership and direction for Human Interface (HI) across the company in addition to his role as the leader of Industrial Design. His incredible design aesthetic has been the driving force behind the look and feel of Apple’s products for more than a decade.

Looking forward to lighter days for when it just works.
