Since the Lisa and the classic Mac OS (along with NeXT, later on) are the forerunners of today's OS X and iOS, I was wondering if ANY interface elements remain from the earliest days to iOS 6 today.
• I could only come up with one: a VERY similar trashcan icon, all the way from the Lisa (and in fact the Xerox Star) to various apps (like Mail) in iOS today. (Apple innovated a lot with the Mac, but plenty of elements were taken from Xerox too--and Apple paid Xerox for them, as many forget.)
And, if you eliminate Lisa and start with the original Mac:
• The speaker volume icons today are similar to what classic Macs used, but Lisa didn't have them I don't think (judging by screenshots of Lisa's Preferences).
• And I believe classic Mac battery status icons (Control Strip on PowerBooks) were similar to the color version of the iOS battery status. (Inherited from what color-display iPods had used as well.)
Then, from NeXT, we have:
• The Dock, but greatly evolved to the point of being unrecognizable.
• Probably other stuff I'm not aware of.
But the really old Lisa/Classic Mac stuff is more interesting. Has anything else survived into iOS? (A few other things have survived into OS X.)

They started out great with the Apple II, and improved upon that look with the later snow white models. Then they got dumb with the candy shelled iMacs and iBooks (shown above in all their cheesy glory). That was Apple at their worst in my opinion. Things didn't improve until they started getting into their minimalism kick with the flat white G5 and Powerbooks.

I don't need to go to the museum because I actually used most of that equipment from Apple // on. Including Lisa. If you have never seen a floppy drive before (SD cards and USB sticks fulfill that role now), it would be worth it just to see that. Apple used 5.x" floppies and the Xerox 820 and many computers of that pre-PC era used 8" floppies. As did I.

(Me too: I keep a sunflower iMac for playing Descent 3. I even have the subwoofer.)
