Is anyone in charge of interface design anymore?

I hate iOS 12 for one main reason. They switched the number toggle and the emoji toggle on the keyboard. What genius thought that up? It's easier for me to toggle than to use that swiping gesture, but now every time I toggle without thinking, I wind up with a screen of emojis.

Apple used to be known for interface consistency. Got a new app - no problem - the consistency meant you could figure out how to do things with little effort. Now, the few times I want to print, I have to figure out where they hid it in each app. I really don’t like having to relearn an app every time they update the OS and take away useful features.

I’m too invested in the Apple ecosystem to change, but I sure wish they had someone who still understood usable user interfaces. Anyone have a copy of iTunes 1 hanging around?

Gee I bet there are a similar number who complain that enough items such as that haven't been changed enough
