The man who won over decades of Apple fans with iconic and his pronunciation of “aluminum” is out at the company. Sir Jonathan Paul “Jony” Ive told The Financial Times today that he’s leaving the company after 27 years.
Ive led a design team that created an army of consumer electronics’ most iconic devices, including the iPhone, iPod and various Mac products. The executive will begin transitioning away from the company at the end of 2019, launching a new project titled LoveFrom next year.
Apple confirmed the move in a press release, noting that it will remain a client of his new design firm.
