Apple Executive Shakeup


  • Scott Forstall (senior vice president of iOS software) and John Browett (head of Apple retail) are leaving the company
  • Forstall's resignation apparently related to Maps problems
  • In my post yesterday I talked about skeuomorphism. After writing that, I found that if you searched for that term, there are many articles talking about it in Apple, and how Scott Forstall is a supporter of it, while Jonathan Ive is an opponent. Now Forstall is leaving, will we be seeing less skeuomorphs in Apple software? Personally, I could do with less fake recording equipment in Podcasts and more functionality.
