There is no doubt that Apple designs some of the best computing hardware on Earth, and it has done so for most of its 37-year lifespan. But even companies known for top-notch engineering slip up now and again, and Apple is no exception.
So we submit to you a slate of Apple’s hardware design mistakes through the years. Most of these have little to do with outward aesthetics, but instead relate to errors in functional engineering. These examples are by no means the total of Apple’s hardware failures, so if you have any of your own to share, we’d love to hear about them in the comments.
