Jony Ive, also known as the "father" of iPhone designers, has recently made an official announcement about his departure from Apple and his independence.
Jony Ive has been in office since 1996 and will leave later this year. He is a great contributor to the design of many Apple products. After leaving Apple, he will set up his own company named LoveFrom and Apple will become one of his company's major partners.
Under the title of chief designer of Apple, a company that always makes the entire technology world have to follow its design, Jony Ive has become a legend in the technology world in particular and the world says general. He is one of the leading designers in this field with products like Mac, iPod, iPad, Apple Watch and the most famous is the iPhone. He is also the person who gave the idea of Apple Park headquarters with spacecraft.
In addition to hardware, Jony Ive also played an important role in software design, the most famous being iOS 7 which was released in 2013 with a completely changed design compared to previous generations and still kept until iOS 13 recently. He also contributed to the design of the operating system platform for the computer of the company that we call macOS now.
His voice is also used as a background in many of Apple's different advertising campaigns.
After he left the company, Evans Hankey (vice president of industrial design) and Alan Dye (vice president of user interface) will replace him to manage the design team.
He said in his speech: “After 30 years with many different projects, I am most proud of having built a skilled design team, as well as developing a unique Apple that no other company has.
Now Apple has many of the most talented employees so far, which will definitely grow thanks to the lead of Evans, Alan and Jeff – all of whom I have worked closely with for years. Apple and the newly formed company will keep close ties, and there are new projects in the future. ”
