Jony Ive’s legendary run at Apple finally appears to be over.

The 52-year-old design guru — who worked closely with Steve Jobs to rebuild Apple into a powerhouse after Jobs returned from a 12-year exile in the late 1990s — has disappeared from the leadership page of Apple’s website.

His duties will be taken over by Apple’s vice president of industrial design, Evans Hankey, and vice president of human interface design, Alan Dye, according to Apple.

Ive, whose net worth is estimated at $400 million, had announced in June he was ending his 27-year stint at Apple “later this year,” without giving a specific departure date.

At the time, Ive — credited for the iconic designs of the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and more — said he will form an independent design company called LoveFrom, whose roster of clients will include Apple.

According to a July report in the Wall Street Journal, Ive felt Apple’s design studio had become neglected after Tim Cook took over as chief executive from Steve Jobs. Ive was and “dispirited” by the fact that Cook “showed little interest in the product development process,” according to the report.

Cook called the story “absurd” and said Apple’s design team was “stronger than ever.”

Ive was most recently was responsible for designing Apple’s new campus in Cupertino, California, with a massive, “spaceship”-shaped headquarters.

In an interview with the Financial Times over the summer, Ive said that he will still be “very involved” with Apple for “many years to come” despite not being an employee.

“This just seems like a natural and gentle time to make this change,” he said.

Whether investors agree remains to be seen.

“You don’t replace an Ive,” Wedbush analyst Dan Ives told The Post when Ive’s departure was announced.

“Ive has been a key part of the DNA in Cupertino and has been the heart of the operation there. I think it leaves a huge void at Apple.”

Shares of Apple were flat Friday morning at $267.68.
