Last night Apple replaced its normal website layout with a fullscreen tribute to Nelson Mandela, the beloved freedom fighter and South African president who passed away on December 5th at the age of 95. The design is reminiscent of the tribute Apple made for Steve Jobs when he passed away.

Apple has posted tributes on its website for a few other distinct individuals throughout the years, like board member Jerry York, Rosa Parks, George Harrison, and Gregory Hines.
