There might be no other product in the world more ubiquitous than one designed by Apple. Known for products with sleek features, classic design elements, and of course, their signature logo, Apple has a cult of fans that brandish their beloved purchases with a great deal of pride. The tech company's product line has evolved from computers to mobile devices to wearable technology and continues to set trends. Apple's success is undeniable. However, that wasn't always the case. In the 90s, Steve Jobs was ousted, sales were plummeting, and products weren't sexy. Luckily, there was a little-known design genius from across the pond ready to make his mark on the world and forever change the landscape of how people interact with products: enter Jony Ive, the creative genius who revolutionized modern design and functionality.

Apple has become a product goldmine with the success of the iMac and iPod, but Jony and Steve refuse to stop there. Jony Ive believes that he can do for phones what the iMac did for computers. And if he does that, it’ll secure the legacy of his collaboration with his best friend, Steve Jobs. The only problem is Jony's design requires materials that aren't on the marketplace, and Steve's health is declining rapidly. In his final act, Jony will have to find a way to honor Apple's vision — a vision that has changed how the world interacts with technology and that he helped design.Listen ad free with Wondery+.

When Steve Jobs returned to Apple as Interim CEO in 1997, the company was in need of a big win. Over the next decade, Apple and Jobs would launch some of the most innovative and successful products to have ever come out of Silicon Valley. But Jobs couldn’t have pulled off the iMac, iPod and iPhone without his young superstar designer Jony Ive. Few journalists have more insight into the legendary creative partnership of Ive and Jobs than WIRED Magazine’s Editor at Large, Steven Levy. Levy has covered technology for more than 30 years and got to know Ive and Jobs over several interviews spanning decades. He joins Secret Sauce to discuss what made the pair so successful, Ive’s legacy, and perhaps Ive’s last great gift to Apple: the design of its new headquarters, Apple Park.Listen ad free with Wondery+.
