Apple Inc.’s head of industrial design is leaving the company, marking another significant loss in the department responsible for the iconic look and feel of its iPhones, Macs and other popular consumer products.
Evans Hankey joined Apple
three years ago, filling a void created after longtime chief design officer Jony Ive departed to start his own design firm in 2019.
An Apple spokesman said the company is well equipped to continue onward without Hankey, who will temporarily stick around as it works through the change in leadership.
“The senior design team has strong leaders with decades of experience,” the spokesman said. Bloomberg earlier reported the news of Hankey’s departure.
