Jony Ive is leaving Apple

Jony Ive is leaving Apple

Ive is planning to start his own independent design firm called LoveFrom, and will be working with Apple as one of his primary clients.

Apple is about to fundamentally change, with the sudden departure of one of its long-time executives. Prior to joining Apple, Newson worked for Qantas as the designer of its business class seats and Chairman's Lounge.

"Apple's core competency of design is unmatched and from its culture of design-first thinking, the right leader will emerge in time". But Cook credits Williams with building a "cross-organizational team, unprecedented in scope" to produce the Apple Watch.

"I don't worry that Apple is in trouble because Jony Ive is leaving; I worry that Apple is in trouble because he's not being replaced".

In an interview with the Financial Times, Ive said that he will still be "very involved" with Apple for "many years to come" despite not being an employee.

It seemed like Apple Park was his last great project.

The iMac took consumers by storm with its colorful side panels and unique user interface that helped differentiate Apple products from its peers. The two will work on Apple projects and non-Apple projects alike. He was the late Steve Jobs' closest ally and, among other things, had been an active presence at product debuts, through video links.

" Sabih leads our Ops team with heart", said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO.

Today, we also mark another important evolution for our company.

Apple's chief design officer, Sir Jony Ive, is leaving the company after 30 years.

"Jony is a singular figure in the design world and his role in Apple's revival can not be overstated, from 1998's groundbreaking iMac to the iPhone and the unprecedented ambition of Apple Park", Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook said in a statement.

"We get to continue with the same team that we've had for a long time and have the pleasure of continuing to work with Jony", Cook told Financial Times.

"Investing in design is something Apple can absolutely do and can't afford not to do", he said.

Evans and Alan will report to Jeff Williams.

He was central to designing products such as the iMac, the breakthrough computer that restored Apple's reputation in 1998, and played key roles in the development of the iPod, iPhone and iPad. This is what Apple does at its best: elevating a category beyond its imagined limits, and revealing how a single device can be so much more than the sum of its parts.
