Now for sure the end of an era.
Legendary designer Joni Ive is no longer a member of Apple. From today, the creator of the design of the iPhone, iPad, iPod, Mac, Apple Watch, AirPods and other Apple devices is excluded from the top managers of the company. In this regard, Apple removed the mention of Joni Quince from the page of current top managers on its official website.
The fact that Joni Ive leaves Apple became known on June 28, 2019. Having worked at Apple for almost 30 years, the company's chief designer said that he was leaving to create his own company LoveFrom. One of the customers of the new Quince will be Apple. What projects Apple and LoveFrom will implement together is unknown. It is also unclear whether Ive will help Apple with the design of the iPhone and other devices.
A few days after the announcement of Quince's resignation from Apple, rumors appeared that the dismissal was connected with the scandal. Journalists from The Wall Street Journal found out that there were numerous disagreements between Apple CEO Tim Cook and Quince. It was reported that Cook did not like Quince's desire to create as expensive products as possible. Ive was not satisfied with Cook's weak interest in creating Apple products in general.
Tim Cook later commented on the rumors, stating that they were "completely absurd."
Joni Quince's position was divided into two. The head of the industrial design team was Evans Hankey. Responsible for the design of the software was appointed Alan Dai. Both specialists worked for a long time at Apple under the leadership of Joni Quince.
