Universal Everything Collaborate with Apple

Universal Everything recently collaborated with Apple to create a series of emotive 3-D wallpapers for the new iPhone that animate in response to human touch. The animations played a central role in the Apple event on September 12, 2017 at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California, to launch the radically redesigned iPhone X, and the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.

Apple's iPho ne event was as much about the highly-anticipated iPhone 8 and iPhone X as it was an homage to the company's impressive feats with consumer technology over the last 10 years.
