In the shift, lead designer Jony Ive will be moving from hardware design to take charge of  human interface design, which could lead to a more unified and seamless design between the devices and actual onscreen elements. With Bob Mansfield, senior VP of Technologies, and Craig Federighi, senior VP of Software Engineering, Cook says Apple is ready to “take collaboration to a whole different level.”
