So Jony Ive is now responsible for everything that a user see… and touch. So rumors are saying that he now sit on iOS design meetings in order to offer and give advices.
Design is one example of the increased “collaboration across hardware, software and services” that Apple said it was aiming for when Cook pushed senior vice president and mobile software chief Scott Forstall out of the company last year.
So we could expect Apple to take a very global approach with how they design not only their hardware but the software that runs on it. I find it so much surprising for a company where integration is such a big mantra that they didn’t up to now really care to blend the hardware with software in order to perfect this notion of complete integration.
Personnally, I prefer the HTC One. Much more sexy. Great design. A well balanced UI that doesn’t scream in your face. But I’m an iPhone 5 user. I prefer iOS.
Look how crowded a Samsung default screen is. They tend to choose flashy backgrounds instead of more subtle ones which could help show the phone design and the icons.
Samsung has no taste IMHO.
When I see this can of thing to illustrate what an iWatch could look like, I see that most people just don’t get how Apple like to start new product lines. This clunky thing that look like a small iDevice lock screen just doesn’t look right. Expect more from Apple.
Jony Ive was Steve’s protégé. It is a known and well documented fact (Jobs Biography). Under Tim Cook, Ive has more responsibilities as he now covers the Human Interaction Group. Remember, Apple is a design company. Those who run the show are designers, not the engineers.
This time, this comes from an Androïd fanboy…
Everything is design @ Apple.
Another piece of great hardware. The iPod touch.
