Mac Setups: iOS Developers Home Office

Mar 3, 2012 - 10 Comments

iOS Developers Home Office

Ever wonder what an iOS developers home office looks like? This great Mac setup should give you an idea. Coming to us from Henry in Florida, this setup is used primarily for iOS development and photography. There’s a lot of great Apple hardware here, including:

  • 2011 MacBook Air i7 with 256GB SSD
  • 2008 Mac Pro with 2 Xeon Quad-Core CPU’s, 16GB RAM, and 2 3TB hard drives
  • 2011 Mac Mini Server
  • 27″ Thunderbolt Display attached to the MacBook Air
  • 30″ Apple Cinema Display connected to Mac Pro
  • iPad 2
  • iPad 1 3G
  • Original iPhone, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4S, and two iPhone 4’s
  • Logitech Mac Keyboard

There’s a Magic Trackpad and Magic Mouse in there too, and the MacBook Air looks to be on an mStand from Rain Design.

If you’re wondering why so many iPhones and iPads are necessary, keep in mind developers need a handful of devices around to test for compatibility and to find obscure bugs that only pop up in certain versions of iOS.

Great Mac setup Henry!

    Would love to know what apps he produced, or if he does general contract work or what.

    Looks like a great home office, more organized than mine :)

    I’m curious about the treadle under the desk. Does he operate a generator with his feet, or does it just give him aerobic exercise while he’s typing?

    @Harvey
    MagicPedals from iBike (on the right) compatible with Mac Room Pro :)

    looks very interesting, only the right table place is very small

    Oh, that treadle under the desk is to alleviate my foot pain, off to the right is my road bike, I ride between 20 to 30 miles a day 6 days a week and with biking shoes, my feet hurt. In the garage I have a 2KW Photovoltaic Solar Array that is grid tied (my meter runs backwards at times) to offset the computing power and the A/C to keep it and the house cool.
