That can't be stated enough. Hat-tip to Mr. Ive for his vision and contributions that propelled Apple to where it is today. Apple's competitors "appropriating" Ive's designs speak volumes.What an incredible legacy. We haven’t seen such a body of work since Dieter Rams. It’s been fun to watch. Thanks for everything, Jony.
You might want to reread the post you quoted. He was asking when the new designs that Ive DIDNT create will come out (“post Ive”)Never, hopefully.
All his designs were about thinness and removing features.
It is a throwaway sentence to imply continuity, but it most likely is a mere courtesy. The design leadership will change now.I guess all of you who are celebrating Ive’s departure skipped over this sentence.
I'd like to see that Steve Ballmer gif shouting "developers, developers, developers..." redone with Tim Cook shouting "shareholders, shareholders, shareholders, "Highly doubt that will ever happen as long as Tim remains CEO. Cook made the call for him to step down over their Apple Maps apology disagreement. And as long as Apple keeps up its ever impressive financial performance I just can't see Tim going any time soon.
Did Steve call you personally or did you read an article?Jobs was the balance that Ive needed. Often Steve had to reel him back in, but ever since Steve passed away, Johnny Ive got too powerful at apple. His words got too much weight. Its good now that he's gone and hopefully balance and rational thinking is restored at apple.
How is this clear?Apple will be fine without him. He clearly lost interest in consumer electronics in the last years.
That's not a design philosophy. All of Apple's tablets have pretty much looked the same over the years being rectangular aluminum housings with a glass display surface.iPad mini design unchanged for 7 years
I don’t think anyone is saying there should NOT be a super thin design. The primary issue has always been prioritizing thinness over functionality. Ive’s thin design has compromised the functionality of the MacBook pros, due to smaller batteries, removal of MagSafe, removal of vital ports(not all would agree), introduction of easily compromised butterfly keyboards, added expense of the foolbar, etc...I actually prefer Jong ive thinnest Design, still think that is the best user experience. I am feeling sad
Yeah Apple have been dropping the ball on the basics over the last 4/5 years in particular.I'd like to see that Steve Ballmer gif shouting "developers, developers, developers..." redone with Tim Cook shouting "shareholders, shareholders, shareholders, "
I hope not. Scott almost killed iOS with his ideas of “green felt” and “digital leather”. He didn’t care about function, but form and appearance. They completely revamped iOS after they pushed him out, then they hit iPhone and iPad fever pitch. I shutter to think how badly Apple products would function if Forstall was running the show.I really believe the man on the right will return at some point.
