Evans Hankey, Apple's vice president of industrial design, is leaving the company.
After Jony Ive left Apple three years ago to start his own firm, Hankey took over as design chief. Apple's industrial design work has been largely handled by Hankey, from the look and feel of its hardware to the manufacturing methods.
Hankey worked closely with Alan Dye, who oversaw Apple's software's appearance and feel, according to Bloomberg News, which broke the news of Hankey's departure.
According to Bloomberg News, Apple has not yet chosen Hankey's replacement, but the company told CNBC in a statement that she will continue to work there to manage the transition.
