biggest news is that there's separate VPs for industrial and ui design again. ive's done a shit job of managing both.

Would you care to expand?
iPhone 5C and iOS7. declining quality across the board.
I'm glad the curved body made a comeback in 5C, frankly, but I agree about iOS7.
What's bad about the 5C? Personally, I don't dislike iOS 7/8 but I can at least understand why people do.
Hope this leads to more CDO positions at other companies
Im confused, he wasn't before?
It blows my mind that Apple, a design focused company, is only now adding a CDO role. Still good I guess, we need more of this in business.
I think this has to do with Jobs being the head of design at the company and them wanting to to install Ive after a period of time so as not to upset the apple cart.
The title is definitely a formality. He's been operating as a CDO for a while now (see his involvement with Campus 2).
That's what I mean.
Looking forward to some more design inspiration borrowed from Dieter Rams incorporated into Apple store designs and new products...
It's interesting to see a glimpse of the dining table section that's always mentioned by people who've visited the Apple design studio.
What Ivey wanted to reply with...
'Tim, it's Sir Jony...Just saying'
Feels like the beginning of the end of Jony's time at Apple.
I've seen a couple of other articles that interpreted it this way
- If he is on his way out, why make a new position which they will need to fill once again when he leaves.
EDIT: More info here --
... they will need to fill once again when he leaves
Who says they have to fill it? After Tim Cook became CEO, no one took over as COO. Effectively, Jeff Williams is the COO even though his title is SVP Operations.
That's interesting, didn't know that.
I guess the reason I am considering that they should fill it is because they created a whole new role touting the importance of design and how Ive will bring it together.
Coincidentally a colleague pointed me to this article of how him leaving might affect Apple..
