It has been said that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. If this holds true, then the folks at Apple must be blushing constantly. Not only do their competitors ape the company's innovations on a regular basis, aficionados of Apple's offerings, too impatient to wait for rumored Mac and iOS products often put together their own convincing version of the next killer piece of gear they hope that Cupertino's hard at work on.
For your viewing pleasure, we've put together a gallery of 30 of our favorite fakes, spoofs and supposed leaks. Some hit pretty close to what Apple has unveiled at Keynote presentations in recent years. Others are purely Mac Fanboy flights of fancy. All of them are worth taking a look at. Enjoy!
Never mind the fact that Apple has yet to start selling a white iPhone 4 -- a part leak from China seems to indicate that it isn’t stopping the company from possibly offering the next iPad in white as well.
We’ll all have to feign surprise on Thursday when Apple announces new MacBook Pro models, since details about the notebook refresh have been leaking out steadily for days. Now it appears the full specs have been leaked for a new 13-inch model, complete with an image of the new Light Peak port, rechristened as “Thunderbolt.”
iOS 4.3 betas continue to bring forth interesting evidence of what Apple’s next iPad may introduce -- and thanks to an image file tucked away, it appears that camera-related apps such as FaceTime, Camera and PhotoBooth are on deck for iPad 2.
Perhaps in an effort to lend further legitimacy to the YouTube video that popped up earlier this week showing off parts from a next-generation iPhone, design sketches which appear to be quite similar have now appeared online.
There’s little doubt that an iPhone 5 will be unveiled this year, and a Verizon-specific model of the current iPhone 4 could arrive even sooner. A newly leaked video of some altered iPhone components seem to indicate one or both are already being manufactured.
The day of reckoning is finally here -- or at least Apple’s “Back to the Mac” event anyway, which kicks off at 10am PST at the company’s Cupertino campus. Late Tuesday, some last-minute leaks and rumors surfaced regarding the event, and here’s a peek at all of them.
You gotta love it when little leaks make their way through our internet wire. Patently Apple is reporting that the European Trademarks and Designs Registration Office has confirmed that one of Apple's new iPad designs is actually displaying an extra connector on the left side of its chassis.
If sources close to Apple are to believed, the iPod touch may be getting a substantial overhaul with the 2010 model expected next week -- and that an earlier leak of a small touchscreen device seen above may actually be the next iPod nano.
Oh, those nutty case manufacturers and their product leaks which drive Apple so crazy! With the iPad and the iPhone 4 launch behind us, the rumor mill is churning with news of what the fourth generation iPod touch may look like -- and here’s a reportedly “reliable” leak that may hold the answer.
