The 10,000 euro iPhone 12 is wood

Apple stores throughout Spain already had long queues, always keeping safe distances, to acquire the new Iphone 12. From this Friday, October 16, the reservation can be made. The 64 GB Iphone 12 starts from a starting price of 909 euros. The 128 GB Pro at a price of 1,159 euros.

As every year, Apple will also launch its limited edition for the wealthiest, honoring its first Apple this year. A clear tribute to the brand’s first computer. All made of wood. This edition is called Apple-1, as the machinery of Apple’s first system was called. The front is a normal iPhone 12, like all those that go on sale later this month. But its rear is loaded with design and nostalgia. We find a panel made of wood with a titanium screen imitating the original

In the same back part there is also a fragment of the plate just like the original signed by Wozniak, the creator of the first Apple terminal. A version of the most elegant, but not at any price. There are only 9 units of this edition. Its starting price, depending on the capacity chosen, ranges between 8,500 euros and 10,000 euros. From 128GB to 512GB. In other words, it costs eight times more than the normal device.

This was the Apple-1 of 1976

The Apple I went on sale in July 1976 with the curious price of $ 666.66because Wozniak liked the repeated digits and because they originally sold it to a local store for $ 500 and added a third of the profit margin. 200 units were manufactured. Unlike other hobbyist computers of the day, which were sold in kits, the Apple I was a fully assembled circuit board containing 62 chips.

It was released on April 1, 1976 and was created by Steve Wozniak. Steve Jobs, a friend of his, is the one who convinced him to market it.
