Purported iPhone 5 pictures leaked – then removed

Purported iPhone 5 pictures leaked – then removedWhere were we with the iPhone 5 rumours? Ahh yes; Apple might be holding off with NFC and not including it in the iPhone 5. ‘Citing.

Now we’ve got a handful of iPhone 5 pictures, and I have to say: they aren’t the sexiest of snaps. However, the most interesting thing about this story is that the pics have since been removed from the source. What the…?

The iPhone 5 pictures in question first appeared on KitGuru. However, the site explains: “Yesterday we ran a story featuring multiple images highlighting key design elements of Apple’s iPhone 5 which is due for official release later this year.

“Due to external pressures, which we are unable to detail publicly we felt it necessary to remove this story and all related images.”

Of course, the leaked iPhone 5 pictures are still widely available on the cyberweb, and we figured we’d add our name to the burgeoning list.

As for the actual pics, they appear to confirm the notion that the iPhone 5 display will stretch to something in the 4in area.

Also, the iPhone 5 charger port appears to be smaller. The jury’s still out on that one, as that’d make the iPhone 5 incompatible with current docks and that.

Well, if the rumours are true, we might only have to wait a few weeks to find out what the iPhone 5 really looks like...

I get the feeling, they were not asked to remove them due to "authenticity" but because of how bad it makes the phone look.
