Kobe Bryant spotted on Apple campus, could be working with Jony Ive on new products
A picture by 9to5Mac shows The Black Mamba and his wife waiting for food over at Apple HQ. The background of the picture shows the couple are definitely at 1 Infinite Loop, or somewhere pretty similar to it. While we cannot verify the legitimacy of the sighting, the original image’s EXIF data shows the picture was allegedly shot with an iPhone at the Apple campus.
The tipster who gave the picture to 9to5Mac suggested that the Bryant couple was on scene to meet with Sir Jonathan Ive, the design guru over at Apple, about upcoming devices. Bryant had previously signed a watch endorsement deal with another company, so this makes us think that conversations could be going down regarding Apple’s elusive iWatch.
Another theory is that Apple simply needed a LeBron James replacement to fight off Samsung’s marketing prowess, though that’s likely not the case here.
It will certainly be interesting to see what comes of Bryant’s relationship with Apple, and rest assured we will be keeping tabs on this one.
