Snippet: Jony Ive to Leave Apple ☍

Apple’s Newsroom:

Apple today announced that Sir Jony Ive, Apple’s chief design officer, will depart the company as an employee later this year to form an independent design company which will count Apple among its primary clients. While he pursues personal projects, Ive in his new company will continue to work closely and on a range of projects with Apple.

I can’t say I’m too surprised, as there have been rumblings that he was looking to do something new for awhile. I suspect the rumors that he had been scaling back his role in products, and focusing on other things like Apple Park may also be true. While it is big news, I’m not too concerned at the moment. I think things will be different with Apple with the restructuring of Ive’s area, but I think this doesn’t necessarily mean doom and gloom for the future.
