Jony Ive Has A New Job Title At Apple (Hint: It’s Still Not CEO)

Screen Shot 2013-06-18 at 9.16.54 AM

In October of last year, Apple underwent an executive shake-up that saw Scott Forstall’s head rolling down the Cupertino aisles and Jony Ive being put in charge of both software and hardware design in Apple… but his title, Senior Vice President of Industrial Design, never changed.

Now that iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks have been unveiled, Apple has apparently formalized Jony Ive’s new role, giving him a new title, Senior Vice President, Design. The smouldering look on Jony’s pretty face is the same as it ever was, though.

    Pretty sure I’d have a different look on my face if I made as much as this guy.

    Scott Forstall is far better than Jony in terms of software design.

    I don’t understand the point of this article. Everyone knows Ive has been in charge of software design for a while now. How is this a “new” job title?
