Sir Jonathan Ive, better known as Jony Ive, announced back in June that he would be leaving the company to start LoveFrom, a design firm he started in collaboration with fellow Apple Watch designer Marc Newson. The Englishman joined Apple in 1992 and led its design team since 1996.

"I am most proud of the lasting work we have done to create a design team, process and culture at Apple that is without peer," he said in June.

Ive hadn’t revealed the exact date of his departure, with the June press statement revealing it would happen sometime “later this year.”

Ive isn’t cutting ties with Apple completely; the company will be one of LoveFrom’s “primary clients.”

"Apple will continue to benefit from Jony's talents," Tim Cook said earlier this year. The CEO added that Apple would be "working directly with him on exclusive projects, and through the ongoing work of the brilliant and passionate design team he has built."

Apple’s software and hardware design duties are now the responsibility of COO Jeff Williams.

We’ll just have to wait and see what products Ive has planned at LoveFrom, though it’ll definitely be interesting to see what he comes up with, given the designer’s history. Hopefully, there'll be no $300 books.

I expected the $300 book to be selling for $50 on Amazon. It currently is $591. Apparently, wealthy people treat this book like a valuable painting or Ming dynasty vase. It's amazing.

Edit: This comment should have been on the $300 Apple picture book page. Oops.

Maybe. Maybe not. Ives is the brains behind the recent nasty laptop keyboards that had excessive failures. Apple went back to the old school keyboard on the new Macbook Pro, which has been shown to be the same as the original one that Ives replaced with his "cool" tech. Not everything this guy touches turns to gold.

He designed a phone without no fingerprint sensor, no headphone jack etc that sold in the multi-millions. On the other hand, there are phones with all of those that have barely sold at all.

Lets be honest..the notch thing after a while turned out to not be that big of a deal. I understand all the design choices that apple did for their phones. I do wish however we could have expandable memory.

Apple can sell you literal ****, doesn't mean it's a good product.
