Apple Inc Chief Design Officer Jony Ive is returning to day-to-day management of the company's design teams after handing off managerial duties two years ago to focus on other projects, Apple told Reuters on Friday.

Ive, who had led Apple's design teams since 1996, was behind many of the company's most iconic designs, from early iMacs that came in translucent jelly-bean colors to the first iPhone.

In 2015, Ive was named chief design officer, reporting directly to CEO Tim Cook. He then handed off some administrative duties to Apple design executives Alan Dye and Richard Howarth to focus on broader efforts like Apple's retail stores and new "spaceship" campus in Cupertino, Apple Park.

Apple has finally caught up with iPhone X demand .
The iPhone X was an elusive unicorn on launch. If you didn't snag one of the earliest pre-orders or get lucky waiting in line, you were looking at a weeks-long wait -- more than a few people flipped their units for a tidy profit. Now, however? They're practically growing on trees. Multiple Apple online stores (including the US, UK, Canada and Japan) list the iPhone as in stock and delivering within 1-2 days if you commit to a purchase. Carriers and third-party stores are carrying the phone, too.
