Apple design chief Jony Ive is one of the planned speakers at TechFest 2017, hosted by The New Yorker. Set to take place on October 6 from 8:45 a.m. to 6:30 p.m, the event will be held in New York City.

Ive will talk about "designing the future," according to The New Yorker. No additional information has been provided on what topics Ive will cover, but with the launch of the iPhone X approaching, it could come up during the discussion.


Other speakers at TechFest include Hyperloop One co-founder Josh Giegel, author Van Jones, Human Rights Foundation chairman Garry Kasparov, Snap chairman Michael Lynton, and M.I.T. computer science and AI lab director Daniela Rus, among others.

Tickets for The New Yorker's TechFest are priced at $1,500.

Whoever’s attending this can someone please have the balls to ask him why he has made questionable design decisions in regards to both software and hardware, why he decided ‘the notch’ was ever a good idea, and why iOS has had terrible design decisions since iOS 7 and to tell him that he isn’t good at his job anymore because Steve isn’t here as his filter to oversee and say no to his ****? Thanks.

I don't think he's responsible for design anymore. He had someone else to handle his design department.

I'm aware of that. Still, he still has other fellows taking care of his task now. Someone by the name Howethe

https://www.apple.com/uk/leadership/richard-howarth/ This guy?

Still though, it says under Jony’s leadership role:

“Jony is responsible for all design at Apple, including the look and feel of Apple hardware, user interface, packaging, major architectural projects such as Apple Park and Apple’s retail stores, as well as new ideas and future initiatives.”

Ah, I see. Jony is still responsible for software design though, that guy is just behind the industrial design. And I’d say Jony has final word on the hardware also but can’t be 100% sure.

I personally don't know what exact jony do these days...i mean day to day life.

Well I know he’s been heavily focused on the campus, but apart from that I have no idea. It would explain why the software and hardware is lacking if that’s where most of his efforts have been. Just look at the endless complaints regarding ‘the notch’ with the iPhone X and the big bold fonts and other software changes in iOS 11.

I agree. The whole releases have been messy.

notch makes sense for certain reasons. reasons that you won't agree with, but the reasons are sound.
