Apple "Apple today announced executive management changes that will encourage even more collaboration between the Company's world-class hardware, software and services teams. As part of these changes, Jony Ive, Bob Mansfield, Eddy Cue and Craig Federighi will add more responsibilities to their roles. Apple also announced that Scott Forstall will be leaving Apple next year and will serve as an advisor to CEO Tim Cook in the interim." The most important thing to remember is that Ive will head interface design. Ive is supposedly not a big fan of skeuomorphism, so hopefully, iOS and OS X will move away from the My First Operating System-look. Expect the current popularity of skeumorphism - including elaborate reasoning as to why it's the best choice - to magically radically decline among Apple fans.

Jobs rarely if ever admitted to Apple having problems with any of its hardware or software.
Forstall spent the last 15 years under Jobs.

Closer to 2 decades probably, considering he came over with Jobs from Next.

WRT Jobs and apologies, the closest thing I could recall is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LEXae1j6EY&feature=player_detailpag... or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LEXae1j6EY&feature=player_detailpag... ...but those were basically about Apple before his return (though OTOH, characteristic of his first time and Apple, and some mistakes with Next)
