“Apple CDO Jony Ive will again be attending Vanity Fair’s 2015 New Establishment Summit in October to talk design and tech — and potentially new iPhones — this time accompanied by Beats cofounder Jimmy Iovine,” Mikey Campbell reports for AppleInsider.
“Ive joined Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter last year in an interview ranging from the history of industrial design to Ive’s first product commissions at Apple,” Campbell reports. “It was during this exchange that Ive famously called Chinese smartphone startup Xiaomi’s iPhone-esque designs a form of theft.”
“This year’s summit is expected to elicit more in-depth discussions on topics of interest to the tech community, while Vanity Fair promises thought-provoking back-and-forth banter through ‘unexpected’ speaker pairings,” Campbell reports. “As a final schedule has yet to be announced, it is unclear if Ive is going solo or will be joined by fellow Apple executive Iovine.”
