Ever wondered why the software inside looks so engaging and beautiful to interact with? Apple’s approach to simplifying the products and making them simple, easy and delightful is rooted in deep understanding of the user goals and intent. In identifying problems with other similar products, having an eye for detail, having passion for creating great products, along with fearless and opinionated approach to shape ideas into tangible products. Future generations will be called to solve some of the most challenging problems of the future. They require new perspectives, new tools, and new approaches.
