Jony Ive the apple design guru hit us with some hard truth while speaking at The New Yorker’s annual tech shinding, TechFest 5-hours ago and he says we’re using our phones too much.
we didn’t need Ive to tell us this: multiple studies have come to the same conclusion, and that conclusion is that smartphones are basically the worst, and the best, but also the worst.
“Like any tool, you can see there’s wonderful use and then there’s misuse,” Ive said. When pressed about what he considers “misuse,’ Ive replied: “Perhaps, constant use.”
And while your iPhone could be responsible for making you miserable, Ive still says he likes it better than most other smartphones, saying he detests “most things” when asked about competing products. He went on to say the design of most products is “soul destroying,” a sentiment we share.
