SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The man behind the iconic designs of the iPhone, iMac, and iPad is leaving Apple.
Chief Design Officer Jony Ive is departing after more than two decades at Apple to start his design firm, the company said Thursday. But he’s not completely severing ties with the company he has worked at for nearly 30 years. Apple said it will be one of Ive’s clients at his new firm.
Walter Isaacson, who wrote the 2011 biography “Steve Jobs,” quotes the Jobs describing I’ve as “wickedly intelligent in all ways.”
