Designer Jony Ive officially resigned from the company. On the official website of Apple in the Leadership section, his photo is no longer present.
Jony Ive has been with the company for 27 years. Many achievements of the corporation are his merit. According to Cnet, he was the author of the design of the 15 most famous Apple products, including the MacBook Pro, iPhone, iPad, and also, starting in 2012, he also created the iOS design. He also participated in the design of the Apple Park campus.
About his departure from Apple was known in the summer, but the date of dismissal was not called.
Now, Ive has his own project, the LoveFrom design studio, which is due to open in 2020. Earlier, Jonathan said that despite the dismissal, he was going to be involved in the work of Apple.
So far, almost nothing is known about his LoveFrom project. It is reported that the studio will be engaged in “not only design” and that cooperation with Apple is planned.
After information about the dismissal of the chief designer, Apple shares fell 1%.
