100 Apple Devices on Instagram Concludes

About 100 days ago on December 13, 2019, I started an Instagram series called 100 Apple Devices. The series consisted of one post per day of an Apple device for 100 days, posted chronologically. Each post was an original photo, and the first comment included the name of the device, a minimal (and parenthetical) amount of clarifying information, and the number in my series. For example:

Macintosh (original, 1984). 100 Apple Devices, Number 1

For the purposes of my posts, I defined an “Apple Device” as a physical object made by Apple that is self-powered and functions on its own to fulfill a particular purpose, without major dependencies on other equipment. Further, the devices I included have at least one independent power supply (AC power and/or battery) and a processor. With this definition, I considered computers, laptops, displays, music players, phones, speaker systems, and watches as “devices.”

Since I was asked more than once—yes—I own all of these devices, and I captured all the photos in the series. I began documenting my collection back in 2018 and these are photos from my Apple Collection blog. While my blog contains several photos of each device in a single blog entry, my Instagram series features just one representative photo of each selected device.

In this post, I wish to present a final image of all 100 Apple Devices in a high-resolution portrait. I offer this image under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

You may also download the original image (24 x 24 inches at 200 dpi resolution, 8MB). Feel free to print and display it if you wish!

So what’s next? Beginning tomorrow, I will present 100 Apple Accessories on Instagram!

What’s the difference between a device and an accessory, you might ask? My definition of an “Apple Accessory” is a physical object made by Apple that is dependent upon another device to fulfill its purpose. Without spoiling too many surprises, one example of an Apple Accessory is the Apple USB mouse (1998)—it is a classic Apple design and it requires a computer to fulfill its purpose. Like the Apple USB mouse, most accessories will not have a power source or processor (although there may be a few exceptions).

Since some of my Apple Accessories are obscure, I will also include a description with each item in the series. I will begin the series of accessories in 1984 with the release of the original Macintosh.

I hope you will join me tomorrow when I begin my presentation of 100 Apple Accessories on Instagram.

Apple Collection

I began collecting Apple computers, accessories, and collectibles in the 1990s. When iPod, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch devices were introduced, I began to collect those items as well. About twenty-five years later, I have an extensive collection of all things Apple.

Beginning in late 2018, I began to document and catalog my collection. I use a Nikon D3500 (with 18–35mm lens) and an inexpensive lighting setup. Each blog entry includes basic information, occasional personal commentary, and photos of the item(s).
