Since its foundation in 1976, few companies have shaped the design world like Apple. The main man behind the products that established it as a powerhouse was Jony Ive, Apple’s design guru for 27 years until he left in 2019. Paired with the obsessive perfectionism of Steve Jobs, the two of them created some of the most iconic tech products of the day, many of which you can still buy today (with the help of some nifty Apple deals).

Instead of focusing on finding the best Amazon Prime Day Apple deals, though, today we are going for a trip down memory lane to look at five of the best products Jony Ive designed over the years. But even someone of his stature makes mistakes, and Ive had his fair share of misses too. After all, no one is perfect. Read on for the best and worst designs Ive ever made.
