And it would come in white 8)
Additionally, all inputs/outputs would have been Apple-proprietary and you would need an adapter for everything you want to connect to your A(pple)duino.

Actually this is a huge business opportunity. You could make dozens of dollars selling specialized "Arduscrews".

Something like this?

Something like this?


But does it have the Apple or Arduino logo ?
It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.

I'm sure the Arduino company will solve a simple screw hole design mistake without the need for an Apple company :D

I dunno.   They essentially sacraficed the usefulness of the screw hole, to add the I2C pins...

Time to give it up...
Those holes been there a long time and aint changing any time soon.\

Arduino and the apple company could not solve the screw problem. But intel resolved the problem by sliding back the sockets.

I'm pretty sure that Intel move the mounting holes, rather than the sockets.  Since the board is much bigger than standard Arduino sized, maintaining full dimension compatibility was not an issue.  (but moving the sockets would mean that shields wouldn't fit, which would defeat the purpose of having the sockets at all.)

Socket head cap screws work just fine, with lots of clearance.

Haha, if it was made by apple it wouldn't have a USB connector, so you wouldn't be able to program it anyway.

I haven't got my hands on any yet but, some plastic (nylon?) circuit board supports look like they might work. They're too big for the 2 .5mm holes in the board so mounting on the periphery is the best option.



YMMV
