Bloomberg Businessweek is back with another extended interview from its big Apple cover story of Tim Cook, Jony Ive, and Craig Federighi. After publishing the original story, a full transcript of the interview with Cook was published online over the past weekend. Now the same thing has been done for Jony Ive and Craig Federighi, who spoke to Businessweek week together about their roles at Apple.
To set the stage, this interview took place a day after the iPhone 5S and 5C launch event. I met Ive and Federighi in a ground-floor conference room in one of the buildings on Apple’s campus in Cupertino, Calif. Federighi was first to arrive, followed by Ive. In case you’re wondering, they’re both nice—not standoffish, not chilly, just nice. Federighi asked me if I had used Apple products and for how long, which began a conversations about carwash wages and an Apple IIC. Ive complimented my messenger bag, which, I must admit, I was sort of psyched about.
There are plenty of great quotes that make this interview worth a read for any Apple fan.
