Jony Ive faces Scott Forstall after the iOS 7 announcement

Jony Ive faces Scott Forstall after the iOS 7 announcement
Wouldn't it be fun if we knew the exact words exchanged between Jony Ive and former iOS chief, Scott Forstall, right after the iOS 7 announcement, which took place at the WWDC 2013 keynote this Monday?

Well, we'll have to disappoint you, we don't know what's actually happening between these two, but hey, that doesn't mean that we can't have some fun using our imagination! So, when you think about these two, it's clear that the relationship must be pretty tense, right? After all, Jony Ive replaced Scott Forstall as head of Apple's iOS software last year, which is not a position that you'd want to be removed from. Having that in mind, let's see what could have happened if Jony Ive had to face Scott Forstall right after the iOS 7 announcement!

Hey,i still MS Paint occasionally for simple tasks, like merging 2 or more photos together side by side. It's a few steps shorter than using a photoshop and its layering method.

Funny skit, but in one attempt Jony blew Scott off the map. iOS 7 kills the former 6 version hands down. Hurry up fall 2013. 128 gig white on AT&T here I come.

128 gig? What are you going to do with 128 gigs?

Porn. Loads of porn. I realize the iPad 4 has a 128GB version, but what makes you so sure there's gonna be one for the next iteration of the iPhone?

I do tons of vid recording of my sons games for recruiting purposes. Plus my parents are getting up there so I try to capture as many live moments as I can with them.

So do you not back them up to the cloud or your PC? I rarely keep any original content on my phone unless I'm using it as a wallpaper or contact photo or something.

Scott Forstall is probably buying Android's and Modding the interface so he can use it because iOS looks like such a cheap piece of crap now HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Man must have taken 15 minutes to put together that inconsistent gird with gradients that go from light to dark than dark to light, some icons are 3D with drop shadows while others are flat and some are matte. Can't believe anyone green lit that ugly mess.

say whatever you want to say but the ios 7 is 1000 times better than than the earlier versions of ios that were made under the leadership of scott forstall and talking about the ui,it looks beautiful useful and simple...and even if u don't like the icons it shouldn't be a problem because most of the icons that you will find on your idevice are the ones that you have downloaded from the app store(apps and games from the app store) and if scott forstall comes to android, you will not see a ui change until he leaves google...that's what we have seen at apple and he could do the same thing at google as well...he does some good work but he keeps if even after it becomes old

Google has Mathias Duarte, they don't need Forstall.

lol...i don't think he is buying android and modding the interface, he will just stay with the ios 6 but i think that he should go to MS...he could be really useful to them

So what I am hearing ( from iOS users ) is that with the exception of HTC ( and its over the top sense 3-4) all the other vendors had it right. Samsung Touch wiz, Motorola Motorblur, Microsoft WP 7 - 8 etc... because all of their os elements were flat and even a bit cartoony? So Mr. Ive owes alot to these GUIs because they were actually very good in the first place? I don't know but in my opinion what made the iPhone stand out head above shoulders from other devices was its beautiful GUI. I remember always arguing that Apple ( my 4s) had a classy and elegant GUI than everyone else ( SJ and Scott had it right) here I am seeing apple admit they were wrong all along. iOS7 is good but not up to the Apple standard in my opinion. I think the GUI that really exemplify classy minimalism is sense 5 on the HTC One.

Android is open to playing with everything, IOS was stuck. So the moment they change, they encounter something that Android had already done.

Love it! I always had a feeling that Jony Ive was a closet Microsoft user! I wonder if he has a Windows Phone....
