The move was disclosed in an Apple SEC filing Friday and reported on by Variety.

According to the filing, Iger’s move came earlier this week as Apple announced the $4.99 price point and Nov. 1 launch date for its new streaming service, Apple TV+.

Apple’s original program play will compete head-on in the marketplace with Disney’s upcoming Disney+ streaming launch.

Iger joined Apple’s board in 2011, shortly after Disney purchased Pixar from former Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
