It is astonishing with what thoroughness and attention to even the smallest and seemingly insignificant details of a second) suitable to create their products. Literally everything from packaging materials to software, verified by hundreds of specialists are involved in the production. Can’t remember a single example, except for the bugs of the latest version of iOS? Look under the cut are collected here something really interesting.
One of the most controversial products ever produced by Apple. Submitted last fall, the pen has become an indispensable assistant in the work of the majority of owners of a new line of professional iPad. And although the functionality of the “Pencil” is able to surprise, its appearance, materials and does not inspire confidence Lightning connector on the end looks, to put it mildly, flimsy.
But! Did you know how much attention was paid to the ergonomics of how much effort was put on achieving a feeling of operation similar to analog letter? Unlikely. Moreover, the components inside the accessory will be distributed in such a way that the center of gravity will prevent the Pencil from rolling off the table and potential damage from impact.

All known perfect “calibrated” mechanisms in the lid of the MacBook, providing the possibility of opening the laptop with one finger. But have you noticed (couldn’t not notice!) the small notch in the bottom of the hull, allowing more easily to raise the display part. In Cupertino know a lot about convenience. Nowhere else have I not seen anything like that, but maybe I was looking bad?

And although Steve jobs as beloved skeuomorph, not with us for several years, his ideas are still alive. A great example is the icon series functions “Flashlight” in the control Center.

Immodestly, I agree, but that was the whole Steve.
