While millions of anxious customers are patiently (or not so patiently) awaiting this friday’s iPhone 5 launch, BGR received unboxing photos of what is apparently the first post-production iPhone 5 unit. Despite the obvious authenticity of the new images, what’s unclear is how BGR’s source was able to obtain an iPhone 5 ahead of the device’s official release.
Apple has already shipped the first batch of iPhone 5 pre-orders and instructed the various delivery services they rely on to stagger shipments and wait until the 21st to deliver orders.
Aside from the iPhone 5, the box (pictured above) is also packaged with a Lightning to USB cable, power adaptor and Apple’s new EarPods, which are seemingly identical to the separate retail version of the headphones.
Stay tuned for complete coverage, including videos, of Apple’s iPhone 5 when it’s officially released this Friday.
