    Default What is Ousted Apple Executive Scott Forstall Up To Now?


    Where do former Apple executives go after being ousted by the Cupertino, California-based tech behemoth?

    In the case if Scott Forstall, the purported "co-inventor of iOS," life after Apple hasn't been so bad. Despite being at the world's most valuable company one day and then suddenly fading into obscurity the next, Forstall is still alive and kicking.

    Forstall spent the year traveling to Italy and South Africa. He also advised a few startups, and became more philanthropically involved, focusing on education, poverty, and human rights.
    Most importantly for Forstall's future, the industry hasn't lost interest in him. According to the latest buzz surrounding the former prominent Apple exec, VC firms like Kleiner Perkins and Andreessen Horowitz are "still in touch." But inside of Apple, the rumors and suspicions indicate that Forstall may soon start his own company.

    Since his departure from Apple, Forstall has been completely and utterly silent regarding what's next for him and his career.

    It was a mistake to let him go. I feel with his expertise and Ive's artistic design, iOS 7 could've been a better launch than it was.

    I agree, Ives was free to do as he pleases with iOS7. It's the buggiest firmware yet! Looking at the files there's a slew of iOS6 pngs also still packed in the iOS7 IPSW(larger DL for end users). Also prior to iOS7 Forstall oversaw the .artwork files, Ives being Ives adopted the .car approach for almost all pngs with the iOS. Hopefully iOS8 is more refined.

    I believe he took a dump in the last 3 days. Watch out for the headlines haha! Seriously, he must be getting ready to show us something if MMi is mentioning him? Guess we will wait for the next dramatic update :]
