Mr. Ive has worked as a senior vice president of designing for Apple for many years, but Apple has promoted Mr. Ive to a new office called "Chief Design Officer" with internal mail delivered on May 25 We announced that it was. Mr. Ive will release from the industrial design department and software design department that had held the reins so far, and from 1st July, new leaders will be attached to each department.


Richard Haworth, who has been involved in the development of the iPhone from the beginning, is expected to be elected vice president of the industrial design department. And as vice president of Software UI Division, Alan Dai, who contributed greatly to the design of iOS 7, is expected to take office.

After the death of Mr. Steve Jobs, Mr. Ive continued under the direction of Tim Cook, Mr. Ive continued to handle Apple's design both in terms of hardware and software. Regarding the question of "Why is Mr. Ive changed his charge now despite developing a product that called big topics such as Apple Watch and was under control of Mr. Ive?" "Richard has been leading development from the first iPhone and I've been looking at it from the first prototype and Alan has given me great ideas on the OS of Apple Watch," he tells the trust for the two, and from now on to management I do not focus, I answer that I will think more freely.

Of course Mr. Haworth and Mr. Dai are under the jurisdiction of Mr. Ive, so it does not have to do with the design of software or hardware at all, but I concentrate more on designing retail stores such as Apple stores and new headquarters I will go.

This is an anticipated project completion of Apple new headquarters currently under construction. It can accommodate 13,000 people, and the energy used in the facility can be regenerated 100%. Mr. Ive is engaged not only in the building itself, but also in the furniture signs are included everywhere in the furniture, such as a chair of an oak or a desk where the height can be adjusted with a single button.


And this is the new headquarters that is actually under construction.
