Rumors of the iPhone 6 have focused a lot on what we can expect form its size and specifications. We’ve heard that Apple plans to make two devices, both bigger than any iPhone we’ve ever seen, and also much more powerful than their predecessors. Now, given Apple’s track record of valuing how a phone feels in your hand, we wonder how does the company plan to pull that off with bigger devices, and rumors point to Jony Ive’s possible strategy.
In the past we heard some rumors of Apple testing curved displays with its next-generation iPhone 6, and even though [...]

As much as people may criticize Apple for retaining the original user interface that we saw with iOS 6 and prior, there’s no denying that it changed the industry in 2007. Greg Christie was one of the leaders of this revolution, coming up with ideas that have become basic features of any smartphone today, like slide-to-unlock. Sadly with the departure of Scott Forstall, and with the appointment of Jony Ive as the decision maker behind the visual design of iOS, it seems that things got a little too dramatic between the two.
Christie’s team was responsible for the [...]
With all the recent developments in the case of Apple vs Samsung, a lot has been heard about how Samsung has copied Apple’s UI to a certain degree. What’s interesting though is that we haven’t really heard about what the designers think of Samsung’s practices over the hardware design. I’m sure you’ve heard of Jonathan Ive, Apple’s Senior VP in Design, and if you’re curious to know what he thinks, he recently laid-it-out on an interview.
According to Ive:

Try to remember the first computer you ever used. It would be awesome if you could share your first experience with a computer in the comments. The first computer I ever used was an old clone PC that my father bought for the family business back in 1992. It ran DOS 4.2, and yeah, I was really good at memorizing all the commands needed to keep it running. That was its biggest problem though. All you had was a black display with a cursor, and unless you knew the commands, all the cursor did was blink at you. There was nothing intuitive about it, and the user manual was very big.
