Apple's head of design, Jonathan Ive, has been awarded a knighthood in the New Year Honours list, according to the BBC.

Ive has been made a Knight Commander of the British Empire (KBE), and can now call himself Sir Jonathan.

Ive has been the brains behind many of Apple's products since joining the company in 1992.

"I am keenly aware that I benefit from a wonderful tradition in the UK of designing and making. I discovered at an early age that all I've ever wanted to do is design," said Ive.

Ive has received recognition for the tight fit between device design and function, such as is seen in the iPhone and iPad.
