iPad Pro Johnny Ive
The iPad Pro is certainly a beautiful tablet, but aimed at the mass market, so anyone can buy it if they want. But his special version is another matter.
Jonathan Ive, Apple's chief designer responsible for the appearance of all Apple devices, has developed a unique 12-inch Pro version. Its front panel is traditional white, while the aluminum of the back cover of the device is painted yellow-green. Apple has n't done anything like this until now.
It also comes with a blue suede case and an orange Apple Pencil.
This version of iPad Pro was not on the public sale: it was put up for auction, and all the money raised - 50 thousand euros - went to charity.
It's not just the employees themselves who redesign Apple devices. For example, the most popular way to create a special version of the iPhone is to make it out of gold.
Designer Stuart Hughes has been doing this for a long time: on his website you can find dozens of Apple devices made of precious metals. One of the most recent works is the iPhone 6S in 24-karat gold.
In addition to Hughes' work, you can recall the version developed by Mana Skull.
