The photo highlighted by Apple was taken by Dorothy Wilding on February 26, 1952, when Queen Elizabeth II came to the throne. Queen Elizabeth II was the UK’s longest-serving monarch. As reporter by BBC, The Queen “died peacefully on Thursday afternoon at her Scottish estate, where she had spent much of the summer.”
The news was confirmed by the press this afternoon. Now the throne has been assumed by his son Charles, who’s now King Charles III.
In the past, Apple has used its website to pay tribute to other personalities, such as congressman and civil rights activist John Lewis, Nelson Mandela, and even Steve Jobs – Apple’s co-founder and former CEO. Mentions of any Apple products, including those announced yesterday, have been removed from Apple’s homepage.
