Shakeup at Apple’s Top
With the recent debacle concerning iOS 6 and its Maps Application things were bound to get bad on Apple’s board. Tim Cook didn’t need much to make some adjustments on the top of his staff. iOS SVP Scott Fostall and former SVP of Retail John Browett were removed from their positions and some major adjustments were made to Apple’s management board. With this we enter a new era in Apple history, the Tim Cook/Jon Ive era. With Jonny Ive taking complete control of all Apple products we finally have someone thats in charge of everything just as Steve Jobs did in his heyday. Ive was one of the only guys Jobs had complete understanding and its a relief for Apple fans to hear this news. The reason Scott Fostall, a Steve Jobs protected employee, has been released is that he didn’t apologies for the Maps debacle that surfaced with the release of iOS 6 and the iPhone 5. It almost overshadowed the iPhone 5′s release as many were complaining that the new Maps app that was replacing the reliable and proven Google maps that was with the iPhone since the beginning, was clunky, didn’t have every direction available and wasn’t even labeled as beta version. Tim Cook is very serious of the quality we’ve grown accustomed with Apple, and is willing to do whatever it takes to continue the legacy that Steve Jobs left when he died, even if he has to get rid of the men that helped him build this empire.
