MacRumors Giveaway: Win an iPhone 15 Pro From GRID Studio

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with GRID Studio to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a 256GB iPhone 15 Pro from GRID Studio. If you're not familiar with GRID Studio, it is a company that makes art out of old, discarded Apple products, saving them from landfills.

Grid 1st gen
GRID Studio takes vintage devices and disassembles them, laying out each component in a careful arrangement that is augmented with interesting facts and details about a device. The result is artwork that reflects a part of Apple's history, making GRID's products the perfect gift for an Apple enthusiast.

Grid 1st gen 02
The GRID 1, for example, features Apple's first ever iPhone, and it is perhaps the most important device in Apple's history. The $399 GRID 1 has all of the components from the original iPhone, ranging from the curved aluminum shell to the 2-megapixel rear camera components.

Apple's first ‌iPhone‌ came well before A-series chips, so the GRID 1 includes the main board with the Samsung CPU and PowerVR GPU that Apple used for the device, as well as the 30-pin connector used for charging at the time and the Home Button, which was just a button in the days before Touch ID. Each component is labeled and laid out logically, making for an interesting exploration into Apple's first ‌iPhone‌.

Grid 1st gen 01
GRID even includes a diagram of what the first version of the ‌iPhone‌'s software looked like, with classic apps like Calculator, Text, Phone, Mail, Safari, and YouTube, along with a classic quote from Steve Jobs.

As time goes on, the original ‌iPhone‌ is harder to find, so this is one of GRID's rarer pieces. The company says that there are very limited quantities of the GRID 1 left due to the difficulty of sourcing the first-generation ‌iPhone‌. It is worth noting that some of the devices used may have minor scuffs and scratches due to the fact that GRID is using vintage hardware.

Grid 1st gen 03
The GRID 1 measures in at 13x13x1.8 inches, and it has a simple black frame that allows it to fit in anywhere in the home. The GRID 1 and other GRID pieces can be purchased from the GRID Studio website.

Does it include any mention of Bill Buxton's work from the late 1970's on multitouch interfaces? Or does this artwork simply glorify Apple and ignore all the work that was laid out before them?
What an odd chip to have on your shoulder. Should it also mention Allen Turing for inventing modern computing, the engineers who designed the equipment that built the phone, every apple engineer who worked on the design, and OS developers? All people contributing work that led up to the development of the phone.

My iPhone gave up the ghost last week, so I’m hoping one of my entries makes it. I’ve been using a cheap loaner Android and it’s been kinda rough. Thank you Grid Studio for the timely contest :)
