If something has worked in the past, Apple isn’t afraid to bail it out, even if it takes its time. Thus, with the arrival of the iPhone SE in 2020, the firm took over the dimensions of the iPhone 4, while the square edges of the iPhone 5, returned with the iPhone 12. These decisions could mark the beginning. of what some have baptized “Retro Future of Apple Design”.
After iPhones, Apple’s next MacBook Pro will apparently take a leap back to move forward. Rumors indicate that the laptop will revive the MagSafe charger, which now also uses the iPhone 12. Y could restore ports like HDMI and an SD card reader which disappeared half a decade ago.
Apple is testing old design elements
Other changes that combine the present with the future and eliminate what is left will include replacing the touch bar, which never finished convincing, and instead added issues like the butterfly keyboard, which only reduces space. In other words, Apple will apparently turn the tide of many changes to the MacBook lineup since 2016.
Continuing the line of computers, Apple could continue to capture elements of the past with the IMac redesign supposed to bring color options back to the desktop for the first time since the iMac G3 in the late 1990s. He is also believed to be working on a “Mac Pro mini” which will borrow its design from the Power Mac G4 Cube. This beautiful part of the 2000 industrial design suffered from engineering flaws and failed to capture the public’s interest.
These changes could represent the start of the post-Jony Ive era at Apple. Away from the former chief designer obsession with making super minimalist products, the new head, Evans Hankey could take a slightly more fun and cheerful direction for Apple’s design.
