Recently, many foreign digital bloggers are sharing their old iPhone prototypes. Last week, a video host once shared an iPhone 4S prototype manufactured under the supervision of Steve Jobs, which attracted a lot of enthusiastic attention. Last month, a former iPhone engineer also shared several photos inside Foxconn's factory in Shenzhen before the first iPhone went on sale, recording the birth of the legendary product.
Today, another foreign digital talent, dongle (@ donglebookpro), shared several prototypes of the iPhone 5S. From this prototype, we can see that there are some differences between this iPhone 5S and the final released version.
However, the color matching of this prototype is something we have never seen before. The iPhone 5S has three colors: dark grey, silver and gold. The color matching of the prototype looks more like the carbon black color matching of the iPhone 5.
This impression has been recognized by the digital blogger. "It's kind of like an iPhone 5 case, and it seems that apple is trying to hide the device," he said. There are several other differences between this product and the final version of the iPhone 5S, including the frosting of the top and bottom of the back (the iPhone 5S uses aluminum)
It is understood that this product was produced in December 2012, only three months after the launch of the iPhone 5. Apple's hardware development usually goes through stages including EVT (Engineering Verification Test), DVT (design verification test) and PVT (production verification test). It is reported that this product is still built before EVT, and may even be the first prototype of iPhone 5S, so it looks very similar to iPhone 5.
Like the original machine previously exposed, the iPhone 5S runs the switchboard system, which is Apple's internal operating system used to test the functions of the new iPhone.
Some netizens left a message below, saying that they like and miss the black color matching of iPhone 5.
