SAN JOSE, USA - Apple designer Christopher Stringer revealed almost 40 prototype designs of the initial iPhone and iPad during a trial between Apple and Samsung.
The designer even demonstrated how some of the prototypes work. This testament may be considered the answer if Apple to the deposition by Samsung of a number of phone designs, with looks similar to the iPhone, but made before its initial release.
The testament of Christopher Stringer unveils a lot about the process in which Apple develops its new products and how extensive this process is. The designer shares that Apple actually made hundreds of prototypes in order to refine the best possible look and feel of the devices. Some of the models were similar to already existing devices or even had features that were somewhat useful, but not especially practical, like the tablet prototype with an extra gripping band, which was shown at the trial.
