iPhone 7 Plus appears again, but it’s also probably fake

Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 7 in September and, right on schedule, the leaks are starting to come at a steady clip. The latest is the image you see below that, according to Bastille Post and MacRumors, might be the “first photo of the iPhone 7 Plus.” But I doubt it.


The device sports a dual-lens camera system on the back, something that the LG G5 also offers, and therefore, seems to be what has been referred to as either the more premium version of the iPhone 7 Plus, or the iPhone Pro. Rumor has it that Apple will release up to three models this year, including an entry-level iPhone 7, an iPhone 7 Plus and some sort of ultra-high-end model with that special camera array.

That’s really the only evidence we have that points to any sort of legitimacy around the image above – that Apple might be including this system and the mock-up or image or whatever it is above, seems to fit that rumor. It looks like it was shot with a camera from 1992, though, so the pixelation has us a little concerned that this is probably just another attempt at tricking the press. The Apple logo, for example, looks like junk. Nothing about this image looks legitimate, now that I think about it.

My opinion? It’s fake. Enjoy it, though, because these are about to be flying at us daily until Apple actually unveils the phone.
