Veteran Apple Designer Christopher Stringer Is Leaving

Reed Albergotti, reporting for The Information:

Long time Apple industrial designer Christopher Stringer is leaving the company in another shakeup to Apple’s vaunted design team.

Mr. Stringer, who was at Apple for 21 years, was involved in the first iPhones and iPads and has a rare semi-public profile. He was a key witness in Apple’s years-long legal case against Samsung, testifying about Apple’s painstaking industrial design process.

From a friend familiar with Stringer’s work: “Great holistic thinker, from big picture ideals down to unseen details like dialing in the friction of a connector just right.”
