Jony Ive

The leading mind behind the look of Apple products is leaving the company. However, the legendary Jony Ive brought us far more than sleek, new products. He treated us to some classic turns of phrase too.

Though he rarely took the stage at Apple events, so often his performances in announcement videos gave people plenty to talk about.

Ivewho hails from Chingford in Londonhas a strikingly soothing voice. A voice that, along with his accent and mind-bending verbiage, continues to enthrall Apple fans and journalists alike.

Incredibly strong butalsoremarkably precise.”

The quality of the materials, the manufacturing precision, the advanced technologyultimately all of this becomes relevant when you just hold it in your hand.”

The iPadon one handis clearly way bigger than just a new product, this is a new category. But yet millions and millions of people are going to be instantly familiar with it. In many ways, this defines our vision, our sense of whats next.”
