Ahead of the iPhone 5’s release date we’ve seen hundreds of supposedly leaked iPhone 5 images. Here’s our pick of the best

Update: Apple is taking on more UK retail staff for the release of the iPhone 5. The recruitment drive alludes to a September release date, just as we expected.

Updated: More iPhone 5 leaked pictures than you can shake a stick at!

Apple’s iPhone 5 is probably the most highly anticipated smartphone in the world. And the iPhone 5's release date is fast approaching.

People, generally speaking, go crazy for Apple – it’s their new opium. In the run-up to the iPhone 5 release date we’ve seen quite a few supposed leaked images of the device.

Granted, no one will know what the device looks like until Steve Jobs struts out on stage with one tucked in his Levi 501’s back pocket. This hasn’t stopped an absolute plethora of images hitting the web - what else are we meant to do with our days?

Some are extremely plausible and could be the real deal, whilst others are just plain silly. Nevertheless, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite for your consideration.


The iPhone has changed a lot through time. Here's the lowdown on where it came from and where it may be going in 2011

This is our personal favourite iPhone image. It may just be a mock up of what designer Item thinks the iPhone 5 will look like, but we'll be more than happy if the consultancy is correct.

Will the iPhone 5 feature a widescreen? The picture above would suggest yes, but we're a little sceptical!


We like this one. It's plausible and shows some minor modifications to the iPhone's aluminium body piece. Having said that, we're expecting something a little different with the iPhone 5 – bigger, better etc – so, maybe this one was a left over iPhone 4 prototype.

One of the first of quite a few white iPhone 5 leaked images. From what we can see in this image, the device looks pretty good and kind of like Wall-E's friend as well. If this was the iPhone 5 – and it may very well be – we'd be more than satisfied.

Oooh err, this one's a bit of a weird one. It looks kind of cool, but also extremely bulky. In fact, it looks more like an external hard drive than a mobile phone. We think the iPhone 5 will be much thinner than this – it'll have to be if it wants to take on Samsung's Galaxy S2.
