Indeed, the week begins relatively comfortably in the United States: today, Monday, is a “Labor Day” holiday, which in Europe corresponds to May 1. But things will speed up in the days ahead at Apple: iPhone Keynote 2022, perhaps the most important date of the year for the Cupertino conglomerate, begins Wednesday. But it’s not the only event in a short time: Apple boss Tim Cook has announced himself for the Code conference in Los Angeles this week. And there he will meet two important people in the history of his company.
talk about steve jobs
it is about According to the schedule of the famous event The company’s former chief design officer, Jonathan “Jonny” Ive, and Lauren Powell Jobs, the widow of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, who died in 2011. The conversation will be moderated by noted tech journalist Kara Swisher, who said she wanted to ask the “trio” about the “lasting impact” of Steve Jobs.
Cook and Ive’s joint presence is also exciting as the official collaboration with the iconic designer, who was responsible for the most significant Apple products in recent years, has officially ended. After the end of his long-term employment at Apple in 2019, Ive was still an external consultant and is said to have worked on the iMac M1 among other things. Recently, however, conflict is said to have been escalating, causing Apple to end its collaboration with Ive’s new design company, “Lovefrom”. And even before his resignation from Apple, Cook and Ive are said to have not always been best friends.
Steve Jobs himself at the conference
The Code Conference is a phenomenon co-created by Swisher with renowned former Wall Street Journal technical writer Walt Mossberg. She joined the “All Things D” program that was still running in the Wall Street Journal; Mossberg and Swisher first renamed “Recode” and then “Code” when they joined Vox Media. Mossberg is now retired.
The conference chain is also very important to Apple: It’s where Steve Jobs regularly used to give long interviews — and even announce personal, shorter products. Here he met Bill Gates, and also came to one of his last major demonstrations outside Apple Keynote to introduce the iPad in more detail. It’s still unclear when Cook, Ive, and Powell Jobs will appear – Code Conference hasn’t announced a date yet. However, this event will be held from 6 to 8 September. Accordingly, September 8th, i.e. next Thursday, seems like an appropriate date – Tim Cook should really have a day after the Apple iPhone keynote.
