You think you know anything? You think Jobs kept Ive's fingers from iOS all these years just because he was stupid? And Forstall had been doing a lousy job all these years? Ive could just burst in and build something better than the old team had been doing 8 years? Get your brain checked? If iOS 7 is release as the current form, 5 years later Apple will be today's Blackberry. Mark my words.
Quick question: have you actually used iOS 7 in person?
Steve personally made sure Ive had the most power of anyone at Apple save for him and Tim. Ive was also his "spiritual partner".
Further, Ive didn't code iOS 7. He merely oversaw the development. Craig F is now in charge of OS X and iOS.
I don't get all this Forstall love. Since his departure, iOS has advanced more than it has in years.
