What you need to know

- It's unclear if stock will be replenished.
- You can still purchase the book through some Apple online stores across the world.
For the past few years, Apple has offered a coffee table book called Designed by Apple in California (opens in new tab). Sometime in the past few weeks, however, that book has mysteriously disappeared from Apple's online store in the U.S.
First pointed out by 9to5Mac, a link (opens in new tab) to purchase the book now leads to an error page. The book has apparently been out of stock for a while and it appears that Apple has no intention of printing more copies.
In typical Apple fashion, the book was offered in two sizes and featured an incredibly minimal design.
Since the book was first released in 2016, perhaps Apple is planning to release a second volume that's updated with Apple's latest products. The book is apparently available in some of Apple's online stores around the world, including in the U.K.
We got our hands on a copy of Designed by Apple in California after its release, and we actually reviewed it.
Although the book is no longer available to purchase from Apple's online store in the U.S., you can still take a peek inside by going to this landing page (opens in new tab).
