Summary of Greg Joswiak's Code/Mobile appearance

Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of iPhone and iOS Product Marketing, appeared at the Code/Mobile conference earlier today. Here's a summary of what he had to say:

  • On the iOS 8.0.1 update bug: "It had to do with the way the software was being sent over servers...It was the way software was being distributed." More here.
  • On Apple SIM making its way from iPad to iPhone: Greg downplayed the idea stating that there isn't as much of a need because "most iPhones, by far, are sold through carriers." More here.
  • On making cheap devices: "Backstage, we were talking about some of the mistakes Apple made in the '90s, and some of it was trying to do things like making cheap products that were chasing market share instead of chasing a better experience." Story and video here.
