When Forstall was fired, Ive took over as "Director of Human Interface" or some such. Basically he's in charge of all of the outward facing design elements of Apple products now. The story is that he and Forstall did not like each other and Ive hated a lot of iOS design elements -- most notably the use of skeuomorphism. It's not clear how drastic his changes will be at this point.
