Report: Jony Ive gets promoted to Chief Design Officer at Apple
posted by Alan F. / May 25, 2015, 6:03 PM
Thanks to a story in the U.K. newspaper The Telegraph, we now know that Jony Ive has received a promotion from SVP of Design at Apple, to Chief Design Officer. The promotion of the man responsible for the design of so many Apple products including the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, was revealed by British author, actor, outspoken tech critic and man-about-town Stephen Fry. The latter is best known for his long-time collaboration with the pre-House Hugh Laurie.
While not much information is known about Ive's new duties, he will continue to have the final say on all hardware and UI designs. He was named SVP of Design in 2012 after the failed launch of Apple Maps led to the dismissal of iOS head Scott Forstall, which put the design of iOS 7 chiefly on the shoulders of Ive. Part of Ive's new duties will include working on construction projects like Campus 2 and new Apple Stores.
Taking over industrial design at Apple will be Richard Howarth, who had a big role in taking the OG Apple iPhone from prototype to production back in 2007. Meanwhile, the man responsible for the UI on the Apple Watch, Alan Dye, will be named Apple's head of User Interface Design.

No it doesn't. It isn't an issue, it is the design. The metal edge fits around the screen. It allows you to pop the device out out of the frame in the event it gets broken and needs to be replaced. if you don't understand the design, then don't act like a stupid fool about stuff you don't knw what youre talking about. Like a typical fanboi of another platform.

Nope as it said in the manual you may get a gap, why Apple covered it up big time and even tried and made the media think the bending problem was not a problem at all and 100% normal and look how the s6 edge bends more, what a joke

personally I don't get it though, these guys waste so much time on Apple they are only making Apple articles more popular and hence more incentive for PA to promote Apple , bunch of idiots. I'm a android user but I respect Apple , their designs are some of the best , the iPhone 5 IMO is still the best designed phones out there, best build quality of any phone I've used.

That's human nature, basically. We just gotta give our two cents. I actually like how iOS looks more than Android. Even though Material Design has stepped their design game up, I feel like iOS is more relatable to the younger demographic of the market.

Now he's going to act more like an arrogant snooty elitist. lol I do wish they had taken the 5S design and just made it the iPhone 6 and 6S design. The present iPhone models are cool looking, but the 5S look was the best of all of them. The ones prior were ugly and boring for the most part. Though I had the 4 and 4S, it was a terrible flawed designed for GSM based models. I guess the 6S and 6S+ will both carry the present loo for another year, much like Sony is doing. So lame. Its no nice with Android, if you don't like he design of the OEM you have, you can switch to another and keep all your stuff.
