Apple: 77%+ staff say it will remain tech design leader after Jony Ive

Jonny Evans

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

    The effect of Jony Ive leaving Apple is a complicated issue. Gruber and Thompson made some very good points in a recent podcast. Ive’s strongest contribution was with the original iMac, about 20 years ago. At that time the products were large providing a room for good design. Now, the iPhone, iPad, and Watch have been reduced to thin electronics behind a glass screen. The original iMac was not very different technically, but it was a huge departure design-wise. Now, different generations of iPads and iPhones don’t look greatly different, but there are huge technical differences.

    If Apple comes up with a revolutionary health data files app, or a killer app using ARKit, we won’t likely see that reflected in the appearance of the device. So maybe this is a good time for Jony Ive to move on.
