Re/code announced last month that Apple VP Greg Joswiak will be attending its Code/Mobile conference, and the VP of iPhone and iOS Product Marketing is just now kicking off that interview. We’ll share news from the interview with the Apple VP below.
While the interview wasn’t live streamed, several reporters and attendees shared details from the conference throughout the interview.
Below we’ve collected tweets from the Code/Mobile Joswiak interview where the Apple VP discussed the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple Pay, the Apple Watch, Siri, and even the iOS 8.0.1 release that crippled cellular connectivity and Touch ID for iPhone 6/Plus users.
Joswiak wouldn’t share the breakdown of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus sales. The company previously announced 10 million iPhone sales over opening weekend including pre-orders.
Joswiak apologized for the botched iOS 8.0.1 release which bricked the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Joswiak said the delivery method was to blame rather than the software itself. Apple released a fix for the problem the next day and said that less than 40,000 users were affected.
When pushed on the issue, Joswiak said the company doesn’t make many mistakes.
Joswiak briefly commented on retailers shutting out Apple Pay in favor of CurrentC. Yesterday Apple released a statement pointing to the number of business that already accept Apple Pay, and Tim Cook said Apple Pay registered 1 million credit cards during its first 72 hours adding that its already larger than all other contactless payment solutions combined.

Joswiak seemingly not wearing an Apple Watch. Tim Cook shared a little more vagueness about the upcoming Apple Watch’s battery life last night.
Apple CEO Tim Cook touched on many of the same topics including Apple Pay last night during his interview at the WSJ D conference. You can catch up on the live blog coverage from that event here if you missed it.
