Caviar introduces a unique Limited Edition smartphone in the same style as the Apple 1 PC from 40 years ago.
The Russian luxury brand Caviar is now offering a very unusual iPhone 12 edition, which is really only for special Apple fans. It will appear in two versions in the wood look of the first Apple PC, one of which will even be limited to 9 pieces. Parts from one of the original Apple PCs from 1976 may explain the price of 9,999 US dollars for the basic version, but don’t worry: The Lite version is a little more affordable.
Caviar is known for lavishly decorating high-end phones from Apple and Samsung with high-quality materials. Such as precious metals, titanium, and leather to turn them into an exclusive and unique device. The iPhone 12 Pro Apple 1 Edition is again such a rare phone. The back is designed like the Apple 1 PC from 40 years ago.
Apple 1 computer
The Apple I was designed by Steve Wozniak for personal use. However, Steve Jobs saw an opportunity to sell the PC. Thus, this became the first personal computer released by Apple. The early PC had a microprocessor and a keyboard. The Apple 1 could also be connected to a monitor. The housing was also unique; a characteristic wooden housing was chosen. The device got a suggested retail price of $ 666.66 USD.
The iPhone 12 Pro Apple 1 Collection from Caviar is inspired by the Apple 1. For example, Caviar provides this unique phone with the same wood pattern and the same characteristic. Directly below the camera system, a miniature glossy titanium display is integrated with the accompanying ‘Hello World’ program from the Apple 1. There are even keyboard buttons that show the word ‘Computer’ in the same font style as the original from 40 years ago.
iPhone 12 Pro Limited Edition
To complete the design, Caviar decorates this unique iPhone 12 Pro with a real fragment of the motherboard that was used in the Apple I. The motherboard was bought from a collector, after which it was disassembled in the design studio of Caviar and then put back in fragments in the design of the iPhone 12 Pro. This gives the phone a very special character – especially when you consider that only 200 Apple I devices have been manufactured.
With the iPhone 12 Pro Apple 1 Edition from Caviar you have all the modern technology you could wish for, combined with the nostalgic character of the Apple 1 PC. Caviar will manufacture only 9 copies of this unique phone. The number 9 corresponds to the number of series that Apple has released on personal computers. As for the price, this exclusive Limited Edition costs $ 9,990 USD, for which you will receive the 128GB iPhone 12 Pro. For the iPhone 12 Pro Max, prices start at $ 10,460.
Do you think this is too much of a good thing? Caviar also launches an Apple 1 Lite variant.
iPhone 12 Pro Apple 1 Lite
Obviously, this is not a Lite model in terms of specs because the same iPhone is used as the basis. However, the design is slightly less advanced so the original display is missing.
The iPhone 12 Pro Lite comes with a natural wood phone case. The old ‘Apple’ logo is also included in this design, as well as a small fragment of the motherboard of the Apple 1. The starting price for this Limited Edition is set at $ 4,990 USD.
Customers can choose from an iPhone 12 Pro or an iPhone 12 Pro Max. In addition, several memory variants are offered – similar to what Apple offers. Presumably it concerns 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. Caviar already offers the possibility to place a preorder, of course, the orders can only be delivered after Apple has presented its new devices.
