While Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iMac, iPhone, and other devices all feature sleek and sensuous designs — a nearly seamless mesh of aluminum and glass that converge to create some of the most clean and aesthetically pleasing hardware on the market — there is one thing at Apple that is the total opposite of all of that: the company’s inter-division communication abilities.
Last October, Apple announced that it was going to shake up its management a bit in order to increase collaboration between departments. Although it has helped slightly — in the design division, the teams are warming up to each other — many barriers remain.
Traditionally, even the engineers who designed the iOS system were not brought in on the details of the hardware that would be running the software that they created.
