The Apple products were donated by Jony Ive and the Apple design team, with the iPad Pro, Smart Cover and Apple Pencil produced for a once off in these colors. The three products are all made from the same materials the normal versions are made from, but the color scheme is custom.

The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is a greenish yellow color, while the Smart Cover is blue leather, and the Apple Pencil looks like it arrives in a slick leather case, in orange. There's a nice gold band around the top of the Apple Pencil, too, which makes it even more unique.

The auction house behind the custom iPad auction is Phillips, where they are expecting to raise around $14,200 to $21,300 for the three custom Apple products. The London Design musem focuses on "affordably priced design objects", which is why Apple's interested was piqued.
