A new book about Apple titled 'After Steve - How Apple Became a Trillion-Dollar Company and Lost Its Soul" is now available to pre-order.
Written by Wall Street Journal's Tripp Mickle, the book purports to tell "the dramatic, untold story inside Apple after the passing of Steve Jobs by following his top lieutenants—Jony Ive, the Chief Design Officer, and Tim Cook, the COO-turned-CEO", charting in the process "how the fading of the former and the rise of the latter led to Apple losing its soul."
The 512-page work will be released on May 3, 2022 but is already available to pre-order on Amazon. From the book's about section:
The book's author spoke with more than 200 former and current Apple executives as well as "key figures" from Apple's history, including Trump administration officials. It comes out in May and sounds like quite an entertaining read.

it's all pregnant men and talking poop emoji now...
Apple is a business. It never had a soul.
No question, to the extent it ever had a soul, it was gone the moment Jobs died. And a lot of these updates, like different emoji, are useless to me. But I still appreciate they make a great product, in form and function. Is it perfect? Of course not, but not looking for perfection.
