Apple fanatics are constantly digging, looking for clues regarding exactly what might be next for the company, and several times visiting points where they don’t exist. The current conspiracy theory: Apple subtly showed off an iPhone 6s-enjoy make devoid of a protruding rear camera at its media event on Monday.
A lot of AppleInsider readers have actually reached out, convinced that a brand-new iPhone model was hiding in ordinary sight at the company’s “Allow us loop you in” event, where the iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro were announced. The alleged smoking gun is Apple’s own promotional video for “Liam,” a robotic arm that can easily disassemble product and services and type their portions for recycling.
At the begin of the video, the camera pans over a handset along with an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s design. To some that watched, the rear iSight camera looks flush along with the spine of the device, lacking the camera “bump” of Apple’s last 2 generations of handsets.
As further evidence for believers, the iPhone is after that filmed from the side, and from this lesser angle a camera bump cannot be seen.
From there, “Liam” the robot makes his appearance and begins disassembling the iPhone for recycling.
Some that have actually researched the video frame by frame are convinced that the iPhone revealed is an unannounced model, whether it’s an “iPhone 7” or merely a brand-new iPhone 6s along with a smaller sized camera component.
While the “iPhone 7” is rumored to have actually a flat back along with no camera bump, it’s a virtual certainty that Apple would certainly not brazenly prove to off such a machine months ahead of its expected debut. In addition, it’s expected that the “iPhone 7” will certainly feature a majorly revamped external design, and the product revealed in Apple’s recycling video is clearly an iPhone 6 or 6s chassis.
This week’s speculation isn’t the initial time that Apple fanatics have actually conjured up brand-new product and services where they don’t exist, and it nearly undoubtedly won’t be the last. many recently, in December, a “60 Minutes” feature filmed at Apple’s corporate headquarters convinced some that a bigger 15-inch ultra-thin MacBook was spotted in the background of the segment. That, too, was wishful thinking.
Even Apple’s event invitations themselves delivering regarding far-fetched theories. Prior to Monday’s event, speculation was rampant regarding exactly what the tagline, “Allow us loop you in,” may mean.
In the end, it didn’t truly mean much. The event was held at 1 Infinite Loop — Apple’s corporate headquarters. And at that event, members of the media were brought in to the loop, as it were, on Apple’s latest products.
And so, whether it was a outcome of the lighting or the angle of the shot in the video, or if it was some type of a post-production issue, it’s protected to assume Apple didn’t slip a tweaked iPhone make in to a video that was in fact intended to promote environmentally friendly recycling. Since quietly showing off a brand-new product to the masses in such a manner wouldn’t be clever — it’d be careless.
