    Apple design chief Jony Ive will be one of the speakers at WIRED's upcoming 25th anniversary event that's set to take place in San Francisco, California from October 12 to October 15, the magazine announced today.

    Ive does not often participate in public discussions, so WIRED's event represents a rare opportunity where he will speak on stage. Ive is set to participate in the event on Monday, October 15.

    WIRED's summit features many high-profile speakers in addition to Ive, including Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, 23andMe CEO Anne Wojcicki, Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, and more.

    There are no details on what Ive will discuss specifically, but the event is focused on "a day of smart, relevant business conversations." WIRED editor in chief Nicholas Thompson called the event "a great way to look back at everything that has changed, and to look ahead at what will change next too." From the event website:
    An all access pass to WIRED's event, which includes the discussion with tech leaders, a festival, and an event at WIRED's office is priced at $1,125. A ticket to the summit where Ive will speak is priced at $993. Pricing is valid until August 20, at which point the ticket cost will increase.

    It's time for this man to move on and for Apple to get fresh leadership. He truly seems to only be there to continue collecting millions of dollars to feed his expensive car collection.

    Don't like to see/hear Jony Ive speaking, keep doing design, that's what he does well, at least for the majority.

    Appreciate my iPhone X but Ive last year.... :In 12 months’ time, this object(iPhone X) will be able to do things that it can’t now. I think that is extraordinary. I think we will look back on it and see it as a very significant point in terms of the products we have been developing.”
    Now even ON ios12 its the same, hope he wasn't referring to emojis.

    Apple made a fortune and still does (Partly) because of Ive (and his team).

    Problem is, he’s a like a prima donna gone off the rails now that the orchestra conductor is no longer around.

    Yeah sure...

    Jony Ive and the team he manages is the most successful industrial design studio in the world.

    With their products, everyday products, being represented in the very best museums of the world.

    Notwithstanding copied and emulated by multi-billion dollar companies like Google and Samsung.

    But this is MacRumors, excellent designers and CEO's we have here...

    I think if he designed the rampantly successful airpods he can buy as many Ferraris or Astons as he likes IMO.

    In 1999, WIRED boldly predicted "Lights Out" for Y2K. Not a joke, not parody, but a true "Dewey Defeats Truman!" moment.

    Even by low-rent techie boy standards, this is an impenetrably dumb comment.

    Next time, stamp your little feet. Perhaps that will do the trick.

    Don't think Samsung products have any resemblance with Apple products nowadays.
    In fact, I think the Galaxy line looks awful.

    Of course. Apple continues to make record profits despite consistent negative feedback of their products.

    Ive and Co. are so deep into their ego and severely out of touch with reality. They didn't understand the pro market's needs when they redesigned the MacBook Pro, they completely misread the market for the Mac Pro, the HomePod is not performing the way they anticipated, and they've completely backtracked on the Apple Watch being a high-end, fashion accessory. They clearly have no idea what to do with the Mac mini, and it makes zero sense that they're offering a MacBook Air, a MacBook and a MacBook Pro, or an iPhone SE, a 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus and X, each with completely inconsistent interactivity.

    Meanwhile, Microsoft has simplified their offerings with quality hardware that receives glowing reviews, and has focused on innovating within the professional community.

    Apple really needs fresh blood who has lived in the reality and understands how people truly use their products.

    'Cause Apple really needs you to defend their laziness.

    He doesn’t necessarily have to be fired, just demoted and made to report to someone who will tell him “no” when he trotts out a piece of self-indulgent stupidity.

    Though I suspect the above would cause him to choose resignation, which is fine, too.

    Negative feedback only from the few here and elsewhere on forums, they have record sales every year so that says something.

    "... iMacs have to be thinner". They just do. You said so yourself.

    And iPhones. My iPhone (X) is so thin and slippery (and scratchable and delicate) that I've had had to buy a rubber bumper for it just so that I can put it down and find it again in the same place.

    Steve Ballmer and the team he managed at Microsoft were once the most successful software company in the world.

    Does that mean they were constantly doing great things?
