Beautiful retro OS for iPhone

Designed by Anton Repponen, this beautifully detailed 1986 OS iPhone screen caught my eye.

This is a timely reminder of the elegance forced upon designers when technology restricts what they want to do.

Kind of makes me wonder whether all the drop shadows and rendered fonts in the modern interfaces are actually necessary. Or maybe I’m an old school curmudgeon.

Lovely.
