WICHITA, KS – 6 Apr, 2017 – The year is 1977. Jimmy Carter is the White House, wearing a sweater. “Star Wars” debuts in theaters. Elvis dies.
And then something really big happens: Apple Computer company introduces its first product and iconic logo – a gaily striped apple that’s missing a bite.
It’s all enough to make a person nostalgic, even if you weren’t alive at the time.
Now you can swing like the ’70s with the Apple Retro Wrap from Slickwraps, featuring the original Apple logo. This vintage vinyl wrap is available for a limited time at the throwback price of $19.84.
Like all Slickwraps skins, it’s made in the USA, easy to install and offers your iPhone protection from scratching in the most stylish way possible – in this case, with a tribute to one of the most influential tech companies ever.
Think about it. The Mac, iMac, iPod, iBook, MacBook, Apple Store, iTunes. And then a decade ago, in 2007, Apple introduces the iPhone, forever redefining what we think of as a “phone.”
The Apple Retro Wrap is lightweight and durable, with an understated matte finish and – most importantly – that groovy logo. The Apple Retro Wrap fits the iPhone7, 7 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 6, 6 Plus, 5S/SE.
