iPhone 5 Website Leak is a Fake, a Beautiful Fake

By  |  8 Comments

Earlier this week the YouTube user account iPhone5Website uploaded a purported iPhone 5 website leak on the Apple Germany website.

In the video, shown below, you can see the author click on a random blank area below the iPhone 5 to bring up what looks like a very beautiful iPhone 5 website. If you watch the video through, you’ll probably start subconsciously reaching for your wallet, but if you take a closer look at the first frame of the video, you’ll see that this isn’t legit.

While the rest of the video looks like it is the real deal, you can see that someone named Peter faked the entire site on his computer — and forgot to change one frame of the video. That and the fact that Apple would never put an image of an iPhone 5 with “No Service” on their home page.

So close, yet so fake.

While the website leak is fake, it does present a very nice looking iPhone 5. One that has many of the features I would like to see on Apple’s next handset.

    Hi, While you may well be right about its authenticity and it may be a clever ruse, going by the ‘no signal’ as proof is as weak an argument as you can get. Why would it need to be in service?

  7. of course like your web-site but you have to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome to inform the truth then again I will surely come again again.
