Last week, Apple's lead designer Jony Ive directly accused Xiaomi of blatantly copying the looks of iOS for its MIUI interface. He said that it's not only lazy, but also a theft of intellectual property. Subsequently, Jony Ive admitted that he might have overreacted and been too direct, but the damage had already been done.
Thus, it was just a matter of time before the latter recuperated and came up with an answer. Lin Bin, the co-founder and current president of Xiaomi, calmly and nonchalantly addressed Ive and suggested that he could send a Xiaomi device to Apple's creative pundit as a present.
Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are already available for pre-order in China, Xiaomi's home playground, where they'll officially land on October 17. It seems that Cupertino's new phones bask in quite the popularity there.
