Apple's Podcasts app UI inspired by Dieter Rams' TG 60 tape recorder

Here's a nice Easter Egg in Apple's new Podcasts app: Developer Ben Lenarts noticed an homage to the Dieter Rams' TG 60 tape recorder when you're playing your podcasts. The reel-to-reel tape recorder was popular in the 1960s, and like Apple, Rams was known for his dedication to product design. It's not the first Dieter Rams homage that Apple has incorporated into its products. The iOS calculator is modeled after the Braun ET66 calculator that Rams designed.
