Check out these unapproved Apple product designs from decades ago
On the eve of iPhone7 details being released, have a look at these designs far ahead of their time from Hartmut Esslinger.
Hartmut Esslinger, who as an external designer in close collaboration with Steve Jobs was essentially responsible for the design of Apple products.
It is said that Hartmut was the person who taught Steve Jobs how to put design first, a trait that has continued on with Apple right throughout its existence.
It's funny because many of these design models replicate designs or ideas that came many years later.
