The British chief designer of Apple’s iPod digital music player has been awarded a CBE in the Queen’s new year’s honours list.

London-born Jonathan Ive, 38, was given the honour for his work as Apple’s senior vice president of design.

The award is for Ive’s achievements in industrial design, which has encompassed Apple’s iPod, iMac, iBook and PowerBook products.

Ive has been with Apple since 1992 and became leader of the company’s design team in 1996. He studied art and design at Newcastle Polytechnic.

Apple’s iPod and digital music sales now make up the bulk of the company’s turnover.
