Leaked Packaging Bar Code Seemingly Confirms Next iPhone Is The iPhone 4S



We’re just putting this out there: a tipster just sent us a picture of what he claims is the packaging label barcode for the iPhone 4S, coming in white with 16GB of storage. According to the label, the part number will be MD239F/A. All other information that could be used to identify the device has been obscured.

Is it real? We don’t know. It would certainly be trivial to Photoshop. That said, if this is real, it confirms that the iPhone 4S is Apple’s official product name for the next iPhone, and unlike the iPhone 4, it’ll come in white from the get go.

    iPhone 5… I want to believe.

  3. _HROH says:

    and your tipster is Chr0nic right.

  4. Nathan Myers says:

    Its fake, look at how the S is a different tone from the rest of the text.

    me too; i held on to this 3G (not the 3GS) for an extra year in hopes of a lights out iphone.  i’ll still get it and it’ll be a great phone but i’ll be a little irritated when the iphone 5 comes out next year.

  6. WardC says:

    This is a Photoshop, blow the photo up to 10x and look at the blur filter used around the text, which is actually a different font that Myriad Pro.

    I dub this a fake.

    Apple model A1387 points toward a 4th gen. iPod Touch 8GB.

    I would say nice, but fake

  8. dagamer34 says:

    Apple using names the public has been floating around for the last 6 months is silly. Besides, Apple couldn’t call the iPhone 3GS “iPhone 3” because that would have been too confusing.

  9. August Drilling says:

    not impressed

  10. Frank says:

    How does this mean that there won’t be an iPhone 5 as well? This isn’t proof at all. I can’t believe you guys are even publishing stuff like this.

  11. Chris says:

    why not snap the whole packaging if it’s in front of you?

  12. Fuzzy Wuggle says:

    The letter ‘S’ looks fudged to me. I think it’s BS tbh. My firm belief is that there will be an iPhone 5 released alongside iOS 5. Announced on October 4th and released to the wild on October 5th. iPhone 5, iOS 5, October 5th. 5, 5, 5. Just saying…

  13. FJ says:

    Here you go again. This doesn’t disprove an iPhone 5 at all.

  14. Adam says:

    No it doesn’t. iPod touch 8GB 4th Generation is A1367.

    Just sayin’

  15. Moctavian says:

    Don’t care about 4S. Need 5.

  16. Tony C says:

    I want the latest, greatest if I’m going to spend my upgrade money not a bump in specs and shaved off old case of a previous design. I’ll look at other phones or wait till Apple earns my money.

  17. _HROH says:

    i bet your iPhone is not Jailbroken because you dont know Chr0nic

  18. Anipz Raymond says:

    That letter “S” is FAKE, ASS !!

  19. Julio Mourão says:

    i think this is a fake one… How come Apple send a single iPhone tho this guy? In the other hand why can’t be 2 iPhones (4s and 5)? Does anyone remember what Al Gore said? 

  20. Phillip Blanton says:

    I agree with those calling shenanigans. The “S” is much crisper than the rest of the text. Also, as Fuzzy Wuggle says, why would Apple create the “iOS5” for a 4* gen iPhone?

    It MUST be called iPhone 5. I’d bet real money on it. This has gotta be a fake.  

  21. Andrew Johnson says:

    Who cares? It’s only an iPhone. Oh and it definitely seems fake.

  22. Stuartos says:

    I guess my Wuggle sense was Fuzzy’er than normal :’-(  I can’t believe there is no iPhone 5!
