Apple Design Chief Jony Ive to Speak at WIRED's 25th Anniversary Event in October

jony iveApple design chief Jony Ive will be one of the speakers at WIRED's upcoming 25th anniversary event that's set to take place in San Francisco, California from October 12 to October 15, the magazine announced today.

Ive does not often participate in public discussions, so WIRED's event represents a rare opportunity where he will speak on stage. Ive is set to participate in the event on Monday, October 15.

WIRED's summit features many high-profile speakers in addition to Ive, including Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, 23andMe CEO Anne Wojcicki, Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, and more.

There are no details on what Ive will discuss specifically, but the event is focused on "a day of smart, relevant business conversations." WIRED editor in chief Nicholas Thompson called the event "a great way to look back at everything that has changed, and to look ahead at what will change next too." From the event website:

In 1993, WIRED made a bold prediction--that technology would radically change our world. This year, the silver anniversary edition of our annual Business Conference will gather the titans of tech from the past 25 years on one stage. They'll reflect on the innovations that made the whole world WIRED and introduce you to the ideas and leaders who will shape the 25 years to come.

An all access pass to WIRED's event, which includes the discussion with tech leaders, a festival, and an event at WIRED's office is priced at $1,125. A ticket to the summit where Ive will speak is priced at $993. Pricing is valid until August 20, at which point the ticket cost will increase.

It's time for this man to move on and for Apple to get fresh leadership. He truly seems to only be there to continue collecting millions of dollars to feed his expensive car collection.

Apple made a fortune and still does (Partly) because of Ive (and his team).
Problem is, he’s a like a prima donna gone off the rails now that the orchestra conductor is no longer around.

Of course. Apple continues to make record profits despite consistent negative feedback of their products.

Ive and Co. are so deep into their ego and severely out of touch with reality. They didn't understand the pro market's needs when they redesigned the MacBook Pro, they completely misread the market for the Mac Pro, the HomePod is not performing the way they anticipated, and they've completely backtracked on the Apple Watch being a high-end, fashion accessory. They clearly have no idea what to do with the Mac mini, and it makes zero sense that they're offering a MacBook Air, a MacBook and a MacBook Pro, or an iPhone SE, a 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus and X, each with completely inconsistent interactivity.

Meanwhile, Microsoft has simplified their offerings with quality hardware that receives glowing reviews, and has focused on innovating within the professional community.

Apple really needs fresh blood who has lived in the reality and understands how people truly use their products.
