Can you actually give something, then take it away and give it back again? Well, in the world of Apple it's possible.
Last week was dominated by the Cupertino giant's October event, where we met the brand new MacBook Pro models. To our delight, some features that disappeared from this classy line a few years ago, such as an HDMI port, SD card reader and more, are back. Us designers are pretty happy about them because we like new things (even if we had them before).
But in being so focused on new releases and updates, don't we sometimes forget about the past?
In this edition, take a look back by reading about the post-Jony Ive era in Apple's product design and the iPod 20th birthday.
Yet celebrating the past, and waiting for the future, don't forget to be present.
