Mac Mini and the iOS 7 App Icon Grid

I speculated on this week’s episode of The Talk Show that Apple’s round-square hardware products might conform to the same grid as the new iOS 7 app icons. Here’s the grid super-imposed over the bottom of a Mac Mini. The corner radius is quite different, but everything else conforms exactly.

My thanks to DF reader Zach Kahn, who sent me this image of the grid superimposed on the AirPort Express.

Update: More here, from Andrew Wood, and another from Stéphan Angoulvant that includes the old iPod Shuffle.
