Here’s Proof That The Leaked iPhone 5C Image Might Be Fake



There was always a good chance that that image showing a bin of empty iPhone 5C packaging was bogus, and now Steve over at is positing just that, saying there’s a lot of noise around the iPhone 5C logo that might be consistent with Photoshopping.

He may have a point, although I really liked the iPhone 5C name. It implied more than just an also-ran product: an iPhone that was just as good as the iPhone 5, but that came in bright, fun colors instead of austere black and gray, or silver and white. Then again, “C” could stand for “cheap” instead of “colors” — not an association Apple would necessarily want to make — and anyway, is Apple really going to use the same product name as one of the Onion’s best iPhone jokes ever?
