Jony Ive Will Leave Apple!
Apple is losing a big name Jony Ive, who will leave Apple at the end of the year. One of the most important name of Apple, Jony Ive, who is responsible for the company’s industrial designs, including the iPhone, iWatch, and Mac, is leaving the company. This news, announced by Apple in a press release, has hit both the users and the stock market unexpectedly. Following this announcement, Apple stock lost 1 percentage. From the appearance of the products to user satisfaction, Ive involved in all of Apple’s major designs and has been working under the company’s roof for more than 20 years. Resources say that the separation is due to the Ive’s intent to open a design company.
Financial Times reported that Ive’s new company will be LoveForm. Moreover, the first customer of LoveForm will be Apple. So, we can say that Apple and Ive will continue working together. Also, Ive said, “I hope we will work together for many more years” to Financial Times. The newly formed LoveForm expected to be fully functional in 2020.
What will happen to Ive’s position?
Apple doesn’t directly replace Ive, yet. Instead, they give that role to Evans Hankey, Vice president of Industrial Design and Alan Dye, Vice President of Interface design. According to resources, Apple will delegate these two vice presidents under Apple’s operational director Jeff Williams.
As a conclusion, Apple is getting another hit from the stock market. John Ive leaving the company, but he clearly states that he will still be in touch with Apple. Furthermore, Apple will be the first client of the design company LoveFoam by John Ive. We sincerely hope that Apple will start renovation and inventions to the technology world, like in the old days.
