Former iOS SVP Scott Forstall 'Delighted' Apple Continues to Make Great Products

Scott Forstall, former iOS Senior Vice President, has publicly spoken about Apple for the first time since his departure.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Forstall said he was "so proud of the thousands of people I worked with [at Apple] and with whom I remain friends. I am delighted that they continue to turn out great and beloved products.”

Since Forstall and Apple split, the former SVP has been traveling, advising startups, and doing philanthropical work. Forstall also emerged last month as a broadway musical producer, where he is co-producing the musical Fun Home.

Forstall maintained a close relationship with Steve Jobs working as SVP of iOS; however, he was forced out in October 2012 once Tim Cook became CEO. It's believed that Forstall was fired due to failures with Siri and Maps, as well as has inability to get along with Jony Ive.

Since Forstall's departure, Apple has launched complete redesigns of both iOS and Mac OS X with tons of new features. Jony Ive now plays a role in human interface design across the company, while Craig Federighi is Apple's lead SVP for both Mac OS X and iOS software.

Tim's Apple wants to destroy Scott's reputation, and thanks to Forstall we all enjoy the iPhone and Android the way we are. He is truly the father of the current smartphone experience. Most people just to buy the hate apple is now throwing into him, and Forstall comments could not express better how Apple has lie to us all about Forstall contribution to changing the world for good.

I do not care much for Scott, he's always been kind of a dorky loser in my opinion. I believe the true talent lies in other individuals and Scott was just a voice. I know he did a lot but I just feel things came his way because he's annoying just like annoying people force their way into situations that nobody wants them in. He probably did the same. I know this might seem rude but whatever, it's just an opinion.
