Steve Jobs unveiled the new operating system (ios) for the Apple i-family at an Apple special event in San Francisco last week. This generation of ios will bring multiplayer gaming and quality high definition photography to iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches. He also announced in his Jobs worth presentation that the next version, ios 4.2, will bring wireless printing and media streaming in November–and it’ll be released in November.
But, what’s more, this was a characteristically smooth launch presentation by Jobs. Who, incidentally, must be the only CEO whose audience avidly spend their time during the presentation taking pictures and video of his performance. Livestreaming elsewhere, perhaps?
The Jobs worth presentation is certainly helped by the iconic design status of the Apple product range. There’s interest and excitement. And it’s palpable. Certainly among this audience in San Francisco.
So many other corporate presenters must wish that they had as much as 10% of the material that Jobs has to work with.
That apart, Jobs doesn’t elect for the easy option. Because this presentation demonstrated the range of new product attributes with a good display by Jobs. So he inter-worked with various applications…and kept talking. A remarkable CEO performance. He handled it all with aplomb; quite a difference with his last iPhone 4 presentation where the technology proved reluctant to work with him! You can’t disagree that Steve Jobs is prepared. He’s definitely had more than the one autocue practice session. And that’s neat. Because, without practice your presentation style might be that of an Alan Mulally presentation. Solid, reliable, but without voice sincerity.
