There are countless case and wrap designs to make your Apple iPhone or MacBook Pro truly yours and original.
In my eyes, however, there’s only one way to make your iPhone or MacBook product look better than it already does: Giving them the retro Apple look.
It could be just me, but I find Apple’s original Macintosh SE design absolutely gorgeous. Perhaps it’s Apple’s own take on the 80s-electronics-beige that was the de facto color theme back in the day. In unison with the rainbow-colored Apple logo, it was beautiful then as it is now.
Until Apple releases its own line of retro-looking products, there are still several ways to get the retro Apple look on your Apple gear, particularly if you own an iPhone or MacBook Pro:
1. A protective iPhone case with a retro design.
$37 will give your iPhone that retro-beautiful 80s-electronics-beige color and iconic simulated fan vents from the original Apple Macintosh SE computer.
2. Wrap your iPhone in a retro design.
For $20, you can wrap your phone with a similar retro design that looks sleeker than a case, but is less protective.
3. Wrap your MacBook Pro in a retro design.
The $30 Retro MacBook Skin from Slickwraps is the only thing that could improve the original look of your MacBook Pro.
4. Buy the $1,900 Retro iPhone 7 from Colorware.
I’m not seriously recommending that you buy a $1,900 iPhone, especially when you can get a $20 wrap that gives the iPhone you own a similar retro look. But the option is there!
Speaking of Colorware, if that $1,900 iPhone is unrealistic but the wrappers don’t do it for you either, consider customizing your current Apple product – be it an iPhone, MacBook, or even those new AirPods – with a throwback color.
You can send in your Apple device to Colorware, and choose various color schemes and finishes to match Colorware’s $1,900 iPhone. Though the prices vary, it’s just another way to give your iPhone or Mac that awesome throwback beige, while also giving you an extra layer of customization.
