Major Executive Role Changes at Apple

Apple’s Senior Vice President, iOS Software Scott Forstall and Retail chief John Browett will leave the company and the rest of the executive team will take over additional responsibilities, the company has announced. Forstall will leave in 2013 and Browett will also leave at an unspecified date.

Holy Shit.

Along with the departure of Forstall and Browett, Jony Ive will be handling Human Interface across the company, Eddy Cue will be responsible for Siri and Maps while Craig Federighi will now lead both iOS and OS X development.

I’m sure as hell looking forward to Ive’s role now that he’s the Director of Human Interface. It’d be interesting to see his take on visual design in iOS.
