Ive announced his decision earlier in June, but did not mention the actual timing of his departure.
According to the former executive, he is going to start his own design business dubbed "LoveFrom", along with his longtime friend and collaborator Marc Newson, the Financial Times reported.
Ive and Newson previous famous collaborations include the Apple Watch, a diamond ring, and a Christmas tree.
