Mr Iger resigned on September 10, the day Apple announced the price and release date for its streaming video service Disney+ which will launch on November 12 shortly after Apple’s Apple TV+ service, scheduled to become available on November 1.
Apple TV+ will cost $4.99 a month, $2 less than Disney's own prospective streaming service Disney+. Both will stream original television shows and movies to subscribers.
At Apple, Mr Iger served as chairman of the company's governance committee and served on the compensation committee since November 2011.
He is said to one of the world's highest-paid CEOs. His total compensation at Disney was $65.6 million last year.
Up until now Disney has had a close working relationship with Apple, with it being one of the first major companies to develop apps for the iPhone and iPad.
Indeed, shortly after Mr Iger took over as Disney CEO in 2005, he appeared on stage with Steve Jobs to announce ABC content for iTunes.
