It goes without saying that with every iPhone built, there had to exist several prototypes before the final version. Each prototype probably comes with features and a design that might not have made it to the final build, which is interesting for those who are curious about the process of how an idea becomes a reality.
Now if you’d like to own the idea, you might be interested to learn that an iPhone 6 prototype has found its way to eBay. As you can see in the photo, the device resembles the iPhone 6’s final build, with the main difference being its Lightning port, which for some reason is colored red, presumably to identify its prototype status.
According to its seller, “I bought this item from a friend of mine, it is a iPhone 6 prototype, it has no FCC logos, Serial Number or Imei. From what I know it runs a debugging OS called SwitchBoard and features a red lightning dock port with a serial number of C39NW00KG876.” It should be noted that this isn’t the first iPhone 6 prototype we have encountered.
Prior to this in 2014, a similar prototype was found and also listed on eBay where it managed to hit $10,000 in bids before it was pulled. We’re not sure if the same will happen to this listing, but you can place your bids here.
