More Apple Prototypes Revealed

August 2nd, 2012

The ongoing court battles between Apple and Samsung have hit another level this week. Apple have been forced to show in court images and drawings of early prototypes for both the iPad and the iPhone and other models in the iOS line up.

Unfortunately releasing these documents shows Samsung exactly what Apple have looked at doing and chosen not to take forwards to actual design stage! And it also means they are available for viewing by the general public (or lucky public!). From looking at the designs it clearly shows Apple have come a long way and done a lot of design development on each of their devices to reach their current stage. Even the curvature on the back of the iPad has radically changed across the stages illustrated in the images.

Thankfully, to Apple enthusiasts and fans it is a tiny insight into the workings of Apple and how their design processes work, and also a glimpse at the iPhones and iPads that could have been. At least from this we can discount what the iPhone 5 and the iPad mini will look like! They certainly aren’t going to show Samsung that yet!
