    Call me crazy, but I’m now thinking that Apple is orchestrating and approving of these leaks. I don’t think we’ve EVER seen this much information come out ahead of time … have we?

  • SJism

    Yeah, it’s crazy this year. I remember the iPhone 5 being leaked last year, but there seems to be so many people obtaining parts directly from the assembly line. I’m concerned for the QC this ’round; hopefully no scratches or dust under the screen.

    Great video, I’m also amazed at the leaks. Apple is definitely putting these out there. They are creating hype and getting people talking. That’s why we saw the change coloured leak first and now just before the official unveiling, we get to see the sweet black and silver. It’s all perfectly timed by Apple.

    Just too bad they didn’t go with a bigger screen…. I still think the iPhone looks too tall with a narrow screen. I’m going to pass this year and wait for the 6. Hopefully my iPhone 4 lasts that long…..

    Dont you remember the iphone 4 leak?

  • SJism

    I don’t understand: why would Apple do this? Doesn’t leaking all this information cause people to be less excited for the official unveiling? And doesn’t this give competitors an advantage?

    BTW, the screen has a standard 16:9 widescreen ratio, one that is adopted by most phones.

    Dat graphite.

    I remember.
    It was a stolen. Not leaked.

    Did you think these ones were legally purchased? lol

    It may make them less excited for the unveiling, but it will allow them to get used to the design and plan accordingly. I know a few people who first saw the “gold” and once again claimed the end of apple… after a few days I saw those same people started to warm up to the now “champagne” colour and then finally – people are now claiming they’ll be getting it on launch. Imagine if on launch they went “surprise! GOLD!” The wrong headline would be in the news. Be real, the competitors already knew – Samsung is involved in the manufacturing process. They would have gotten leaks even if we didn’t.

  • WatDah

    No, they were leaked.

    Meaning stolen…
