Renowned designer Jonny Ive has now disappeared from Apple’s official website, suggesting that his life in Cupertino is over. Ive joined Apple in 1992 and has led the design team since 1996. According to Google’s cache, Eve was officially removed from Apple’s leadership page at 11:12:55 GMT on November 26, 2019.
It’s not clear exactly when Ive left Apple. In a press release announcing his departure, he said only that it would happen “later this year.” Some say Ive softened Apple’s product design a long time ago because of distractions from designing and building Apple’s new ship headquarters.
After leaving Apple, Ive and co-founder Marc Newson co-founded a new company called LoveFrom, one of the company’s key customers. Tim Cook, Apple’s chief executive, said at the time: “Apple will continue to benefit from Jonny’s talent son by working directly with Jonny on exclusive projects and the ongoing work of the passionate and passionate design team he has built.” “The hardware and software design is now the responsibility of Chief Operating Officer Jeff Williams.
