Caviar, a site known for creating extravagant, expensive replacement casings for Apple's iPhone models, today announced the launch of its latest custom creation, an iPhone 12 Pro customized in the style of an iPhone 4.

The "iPhone 12 Pro Jobs 4" collection is dedicated to Steve Jobs and the 10th anniversary of the iPhone 4 – the last model to be personally presented by Jobs – and features iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max models in blackened titanium, white, and a luxury gold version.

The front of each iPhone has been left untouched, but the backs feature an authentic fragment of Jobs' original famous turtleneck embedded in the Apple logo, while the lower part of the smartphones are adorned with Jobs' autograph, "as a sign of quality, a symbol of his time," and the famous Apple slogan, "Think different."

According to Caviar, the white model is made of composite G10 covered with jewelry enamel and its apple logo is made of 925 sterling silver, while the gold model is made of genuine 18 karat gold and its apple logo is crafted from 750 gold.


More details on the new "iPhone 12 Pro Jobs 4" collection can be found on Caviar's website. The new iPhones are priced starting at $6,490 for a 128GB black titanium iPhone 12 model, and go up to $10,140 for a black and gold iPhone 12 Pro Max with 512GB storage.

Something tells me Steve Jobs family will sue them. Probably Apple also!
The use of Steve Jobs signature is probably still protected by copyright

edit:
"Think different" and "designed by apple in california" are probably trademarks still protected in many countries.
They will be sued for sure

When are they planning on exhuming him and sticking fragments of Steve Jobs' bones inside an iPhone? Has anyone attributed a miracle to having a piece of his sweater yet? Should the Apple faithful invade California and set up a kingdom there to consolidate their control of the holy land?

What about the sneakers - what do they have to do with the iPhone 4 memorial?

Yes, this is what we want and need. Just like a new phone every year. Bring it on! Can't wait for what Apple and Caviar do with iPhone 13.

EDIT: Disagreements with my post suggest that people are not ready to justify this one as they do Apple. To the ones who disagree and to those who might disagree, I append a /s to my comments. I didn't think it would not be obvious. :D

This does make them look a lot like the iPhone 4(S) series, which is kinda cool. All the text on the back and the super basic “iPhone 12 Pro” font ruins it though.
