Photos of Early iPad Mockup Surface in Litigation


In a deposition of Jonathan Ive, Apple Inc.’s senior vice president, industrial design, taken as part of litigation involving Samsung, some photographs of early mockups of the iPad were referenced. The lawsuit Apple Inc. v. Samsung filed in US District Court in California resulted in depositions of Mr. Ive and others.

The photos appear to be similar to the patent drawings.

The 035 mockup were some of the first design models explored in developing what eventually became the iPad.

A patent was filed in 2005 in which various sketches resemble the photos that appear in Ive’s deposition.

The image from the patent below is similar to the photo referenced in the deposition also shown below.

Some of the court filings are available via PACER or from justia.com. Network World has also posted some excerpts and photos from the deposition.
