In 2015, Apple released a few products that are ridiculously designed. While some of these absolutely stand out, and there are some that still manage to cover up. Anyways, here is the list of ultimate fails!
5. iPad Pro Smart Keyboard
The iPad Pro's first-party keyboard accessory, in addition to its terribly shallow keys and ridiculous prize adds a hump to the iPad Pro when folded. Yeah, that is terrible:
Now, I do not know why Apple did this, but I do understand that there are hundreds of better options for iPad keyboards in the market. They might be thicker, but almost none of them create a bump like this. The iPad Pro Smart Keyboard case isn’t all worth the money, so if you do own an iPad Pro, look for alternatives.
4. MacBook USB-C
3. Magic Mouse
2. Apple Pencil
Sure, the Pencil is one of the best stylus options out there, but Apple made a bunch of mistakes with its design. First up, the Pencil lacks an eraser, which is acceptable but puts the Pencil to shame in front of the Microsoft Surface Pen. And then the charging:
1. The iPhone Battery Case
Although I am fond of the iPhone’s slim design, I would have minded a thicker body for a larger battery. Apple clearly made this case to correct a mistake they did with the iPhone 6 and 6S. But it ended up to be a mistake in itself, thanks to its absolutely hideous design.
And that’s it! Although the idea of this post has been mine, I’m linking a video by Jonathan Morrison (aka. TLD Today) that talks about the same topic. I did watch the video and took inspiration from it, so I must give the credits. Also, almost all the pictures above are from the video. If you do watch the video, definitely check out the comments for some more laughter.
