Apple’s chief design officer Jony Ive has created a one-of-a-kind iPad Pro that will be auctioned off as part of a fundraiser for the London Design Museum.

The tablet has been anodised with a bright tallow dye and is estimated to go for between £10,000 and £15,000.

As well as the one-off yellow anodised aluminium backplate and a blue suede-lined leather Smart Cover, the tablet will be laser-etched with ‘Edition 1 of 1’.

Apart from its unique appearance, the iPad Pro will feature all the usual specs found in the device.

The auction, which will be held at the Phillips auction house in central London, has been designed to raise money for London’s Design Museum, which is currently in the process of relocating from Tower Bridge to Kensington.

It takes place on April 28th. Also up for sale on the day will be an Anthony Gormley sculpture, a Marc Newson tea and coffee set, and a one-to-one styling session with Stella McCartney.

Those wishing to dip into their pockets and bid on the unique iPad Pro or any of the other offers on sale can find out more information about the auction here.

The firm introduced a new 9.7-inch iPad Pro in March. It comes with a 64-bit A9X chip, a four-speaker audio system, 12MP camera, 5MP HD FaceTime camera, and an Apple Pencil.

Earlier this year, PCR reported on Apple’s iPhone 6 Error 53 issue.

After numerous reports claiming any iPhone 6 home button replaced by a third part repairer will result in an handset-locking Error 53 once updated to iOS 9, one indie declared that the issue had been 'blown out of all proportion’ by the mainstream media.

A week later, Apple released a software fix.
