    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.

    He appeared in the iPhone X video and he’s still listed on Apples site as ‘Chief Design Officer’.

    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.”

    Can someone ask him about the mac pro? The current and next generation pro. Would be interesting to see how he justified the 2013 model.

    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.

    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.

    Obviously most people do not have a clue regarding engineering trade off.

    A future where you can't upgrade RAM in your own computer. Even my old Color Computer 2 had that capability.

    We are well aware of engineering trade offs. Apple used to not make them, however, putting designers before engineers.
