Day 2: iOS 6 fridge magnets, because you know you don’t deserve iOS 7
It really would make sense if these 18 magnets, modeled after the iPhone’s instantly recognizable default app icons, were designed to resemble the ones from the current iOS generation… but they’re not. Deal with it.
Why would anyone want even one of these tiny metal magnets, let alone all 18 of them? I have no idea. Maybe they have a tiny black or white fridge that they want to make look like an iPhone. Maybe they’re so in love with iOS 6 that they just can’t stand to let the skeuomorphic beauty of those apps die. Or maybe they have an iPhone and you can’t think of anything else to cram in the stocking of a loved one. All of these are valid reasons, and for less than US$4, it’s hard to bet against these little guys.
