The similarities between the software design and MIUI iOS finally pushed Apple to respond with the voice of his master designer. He thinks what Xiaomi is doing is simply stealing his own work.E4 and MIUI 6.
Xiaomi is inspired by Apple, and it is a fact that the creator of the Chinese firm, Lei Jun did not hide it ever . The Man worships Steve Jobs as old photographs or interviews are there to prove it. He was used to wear a black turtleneck as his idol. Until now it was thought that Apple saw this with an amused eye almost morbid inspiration from Xiaomi. But that was before the Chinese manufacturer became one of the most powerful of Asia, surpassing his master in terms of sales in the second quarter of the current year.
This is the last straw for Apple too who spoke in an interview with the voice of Jony Ive, the vice president of design at the California branch. While he was just asked about Xiaomi, the man said “There is a danger … I do not see it as flattery. I see it as theft. When you do something for the first time you do not know whether it’ll work ” he says to justify that it is not new.
This is the first time Apple is expressed vis-à-vis Xiaomi and it is Samsung who has a good laugh.
