The story of the Apple Newton on “For All Mankind” continues to unfold.
Earlier this week, we reported that a cult-favorite Apple device, the Apple Newton, made a cameo in “For All Mankind.” Today, we know just how they pulled it off.
Ben McGinnis, a producer for the series, posted a series of photos showing off the modified device. As explained by McGinnis, the team actually managed to fit an iPhone 12 Pro Max inside the housing of the Newton, enabling them to use the front-facing camera for the POV shots in the series.
The modified Newton was used as a video communications device in the third season of “For All Mankind.” It’s crazy to think that the user interface is likely an app or a video running on the iPhone 12 Pro Max inside.
