We are very used to seeing how Apple takes maximum care of the scenography of its events, especially since they are pre-recorded videos. All the places in which Tim Cook and other top executives appear are pristine, perfect, as if the entropy of this universe did not have a tendency toward disorder.
But among all that perfection we have the odd little surprise in the form of details that are intentionally left in place for Apple veterans to notice and point out. And in the ‘Wonderlost’ event we have warned not one, but several.
They are not there by chance: it is a good nostalgia movement
Look, without going any further, in what Jonathan Zufi warns from his Twitter account. While the news of the A17 Pro chip was explained to us, on a shelf in the back of the Apple Park laboratories an original Macintosh appearedthere as if nothing had happened:
Another Twitter user, Erwin K, responds to the original author with another cameo of a device recognizable to the league for those of us who have been here for our years: in that same segment of the event an original iPhone appears on top of one of the tables:
Finally we have something that has also circulated a lot on the networks but that we realized instantly: at minute 1:13:12 of the event video, while the new features of the iPhone 15 Pro cameras are explained to us, on the table there is a box of the very old iSight cameras:
It’s nice to see how Apple takes care of those details. They are small winks, but they make those of us of an age suddenly jump out of our chairs and at the same time remind us that Apple’s history already spans several decades. I still remember seeing the three devices of these cameos in everyday situationsI’m getting older.
