    Jobs- OG, 3G, 3GS, 4,
    Cook- 4s (arguably a Jobs phone, but under Cook's helm post death when it was released), 5, 5s, 6/6+, 7/7+
    and then also SE and 5c if you count those

    4 phones under Steve's realm,
    and 5 phones under cook (4 if u dont count 4s which i wouldnt not count), but really 7 if you include phablets as separate under same series

    and then from there 7 if you include SE and 5c but not phablet delineation, and 9 total if u include all models

    either way, lots of Cook iPhones

    ,maybe not "crazy" but weird to think about


    iPads, no competition
    OG and 2 under Jobs,
    3, 4, Air, Air2, pro 12.9, and pro 9.7 under Tim Cook

    I would argue that the 5 and 5S were also in development under Jobs, but the 6 series upward have all been Cook. So for me that's 7 Cook and 7 Jobs.

    Not sure where the 5C would fall though.

    Yeah I think 5 would fall under Jobs too from a brainchild POV

    all the more reason to love my SE :D

    I guess I'm speaking strictly in a release sense

    Like others said, I think the 5 was jobs too in the sense he left the idea for Apple.

    Didn't Tim say after Jobs died that he was involved in the following 3 years of development? So that would include 5, 5s, 5c & 6.

    I'm pretty positive that that 5 and 5s was Jobs' design/ideas. I've heard that he worked on future designs and ideas

    There really is no telling what kind of ideas Jobs had but I remember Cook in a recent-isa interview saying new things in the pipeline have Jobs' DNA too.

    5c was "unapologetically" Ive.

    Why weird, what's the mystery.

    New management, new methods. Cook said clearly "I am not going back asking what Steve would had done."

    But under cooks leadership we there has been the 6 6S and 7 which are all based around the design of the 6. So iPhone 8 next year will be the phone that may be completely under Cooks. Might have features that Jobs would have liked but the design will be Cooks.
