I think if your looking for a switch up in iOS, which I also am, I think the loss of Scott is actually bad news.
I have been feeling that for the last two years that he and Apple must have had a fresh new take on the iOS and been developing it slowly over the years. How could they not be? iOS is great and instantly recognizable but the mobile market grows fast and changes more frequently than the desktop market, so I don't think they could not have been prepping something new.
My guess is that with mobile phones becoming more powerful and storage prices dropping, they will eventually close the gap differences between iOS and OSX or whatever their new desktop OS will be. May take a few years but this seems logical
Now I'm not saying that they will be identical, but . . .
With Scott gone now, I doubt any drastic changes will happen next soon. . I think they will keep the ship on course and restructure or tweak things another year or so until they can figure when the next big jump I'm iOS is.
I thought Scott had the best stage persona over anyone currently at Apple, and from what I read he seemed to understand or at least emulate Steve's direction in a leadship role.
But who knows what's going on really. It will be an interesting time at Apple.
Hopefully Apple can still amaze us while keeping in tradition with the design and functionality we come to expect from them.
I have to say, it feels like now that iPhone 5 has shipped, we are truly entering the post Steve Jobs era which is both sad and frighting.
But it's can also be exciting.
Man I miss Steve.
