These are extraordinary numbers, especially given that the phone’s not even fully rolled-out: you can only buy a 4S in seven countries, with 63 more by the end of the year

Scott Forstall, the Polarizing Genius Behind iOS, is the mini-Steve Jobs

Aqua, OS X Leopard, the Mac-minded philosophy iOS, and the App Store are all children of Forstall’s vision.

Forstall was behind or involved in several key iPhone-related patents, and he’s likely the most important person at the company behind Tim Cook and Jon Ive. He’s also the closest approximation to Steve Jobs currently working at Apple:

In many ways, Forstall is a mini-Steve. He’s a hard-driving manager who obsesses over every detail. He has Jobs’s knack for translating technical, feature-set jargon into plain English.
