To celebrate the upcoming launch of Apple’s new Mac Studio, we’ve teamed up with GRID Studio to present it Mac rumors Readers have a chance to win a new M1 Max Mac Studio or one of the Apple device art pieces disassembled from GRID Studio.
GRID Studio is known for its artistic design from old Apple devices that are an important part of Apple’s history. Each device is disassembled, and components are subtly displayed behind a glass frame that can be hung on the wall of any Apple fan.
Since GRID Studio works with classic Apple hardware, there won’t be any unassembled Mac Studio artifacts on sale for some time, but there are plenty of other offerings on the GRID Studio website, with prices starting around $40 and going up depending on the complexity.
GRID 1, for example, is one of the most popular pieces of GRID Studio because it features an original iPhone, perhaps the most important device in Apple’s history. At $400, GRID 1 often goes on sale, but GRID Studio has a new series of GRID 1 pieces coming later in March.
Measuring 13x13x8, GRID 1 features a shredded iPhone with all the internal components separated and named so you can see everything that made the original iPhone so special at a glance. The iPhone housing is displayed next to individual components that include the power button, headphone jack, speaker, logic board, circuit board, earpiece, and other components.
Each piece of GRID artwork highlights what was important about the unique iPhone. With the $140 GRID iPhone 4S, for example, there’s a clear look at the classic square edges Apple recently brought back for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, along with the circular volume buttons and the A5 chipset.
If you have a favorite classic iPhone app, there’s a good chance GRID has broken it. In addition to the original iPhone, there’s also GRID chops for everything even the iPhone X, along with A-series chips like the A5X, Apple Watch, Magic Mouse, and more.
The GRID iPhone X at $269 is interesting because iPhone X was Apple’s first iPhone with a notch and Face ID facial recognition system. You can see Face ID components placed alongside other iPhone X parts like the dual-lens camera, Taptic Engine, and A11 Bionic chip.
Every GRID Studio piece includes all the original parts of the device, but the company doesn’t use real batteries to prevent any issues with the battery expanding or exploding with age. GRID artwork is perfect for desk decoration or as a gift for Apple fans. The disassembled hardware is attractive to look at, informative and provides an interesting glimpse into Apple’s history.
The grand prize winner will receive an M1 Max Mac Studio with 10-core GPU, 24-core GPU, 32GB unified memory, 512GB SSD, plus GRID 1 featuring the original iPhone. The second prize winner will receive a GRID iPhone X, the third prize winner will receive a GRID iPhone 4S, and three additional winners will receive a GRID A5X.
