The disappearance of the Queen Elizabeth left everyone speechless. After all, the sovereign boasts the longest reign in the history of the United Kingdom. And perhaps also one of the most loved. Precisely for this reason, Apple has chosen to celebrate her Queen Elizabeth by dedicating the Home Page of her site to her. A gesture of closeness to the royal family, and a tribute to one of the women who wrote the history of our continent.
Queen Elizabeth: Apple dedicates the home page of the site to the sovereign
Coinciding with the death of Queen Elizabeth, Apple has decided to honor her reign by dedicating the Home Page of its site to her. Now, in fact, you will no longer find the silhouette of the iPhone 14 in plain sight, but a black and white photo of the sovereign, taken by Dorothy Wilding February 26, 1952, when Elizabeth ascended the throne. An image accompanied by the message “In memoriam. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II “.
There is nothing more noble than to devote your life to the service of others. We stand with the people of the UK and Commonwealth in honoring the life and dedication to duty of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. May she rest in peace. pic.twitter.com/GkLpqyovlh

To Apple’s grief is also added that of the CEO Tim Cook, who in these hours has paid homage to the Queen with a message on Twitter. “There is nothing nobler than dedicating your life to the service of others. We stand by the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth to honor the life and dedication to the duty of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. May you rest in peace “. So the Cupertino company chose to pay homage to the woman who led the United Kingdom for seven decades.
On the other hand, it is not the first time that Apple has dedicated its Home Page to important personalities. In the past it has happened with John Lewiscongressman and civil rights activist, Nelson Mandela e Steve Jobs, co-founder of the company. And once again, all Apple products have left the main page of Apple.com to make room for Queen Elizabeth. With good reason. And with a good memory, above all.
