Yesterday, some supposed pictures of the iPhone 6 materialised, but something about them didn’t sit well with us – not to mention the fact that it’s probably too early to be looking at the finished product.
Twenty-four hours later, the internet has collectively destroyed any notion of the iPhone 6 pictures being legit. Let’s take a look and laugh.
The source of the iPhone 6 pictures was a spanking new twitter account (yes, those are alarm bells you hear), namely @mornray886, which aimed the pictures at a handful of Apple-focused publications. Couldn’t just let the internet do its thing, huh?
To be fair, the iPhone 6 pictures actually look kinda sexy; I like them. But as terrible TV show Catfish takes great pleasure in reminding us: sexy and real are two very different things.
For starters, this forum post on MacRumours brilliantly highlights repeating textures (picture above) on both the back and front of the iPhone 6.
Furthermore, a post on Reddit explains: “The new iPhone 6 images are CONFIRMED FAKE. They are renderings done by Martin Hajek. He uses the same smudge texture in all of his renderings.”
The claim is backed up with this rather convincing image, showing how the iPhone 6 display has in fact been ripped from an old iPad rendering.
So, yeah, load of nonsense. Well done, internet.
