Apple built unique version of the iPad Pro for charity
The Apple iPad Pro gets a special design by Ive and team
For an upcoming Design Museum charity auction to be held on April 28th, the tech titan's design chief Jony Ive built with his team a unique model of the 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro that you won't find in any store. First, the casing is made from yellow aluminum, and some of the accessories have been given a rich looking upgrade. For example, the Smart Cover is made from French Leather, and there is an orange Apple Pencil case produced from Italian Leather.
The auction house that has the slate up for bid, Phillips, has a price range of $14,200 to $21,300 on the lot which includes the tablet, the Apple Pencil and case, and the Smart Cover. The listing in the catalog notes that the tablet was listed by the Apple Design Team.
We get the feeling that the winning bidder isn't going to be taking this one-of-a-kind Apple iPad Pro out to his/her usual tablet using locations. And that is a shame, really. Can you imagine the commotion that would be caused by everybody inside an office or a coffee shop trying to find out more information about this strange looking new Apple product?
