We know eBay can be crazy sometimes, but this time around we believe it has gone nuts! Why would Apple fans battle over a prototype of iPhone 6 when the real thing is out in the market is something we can’t grasp. However, it seems to be something out of this world for the bidding has crossed the $100,000 mark.
The item is being claimed by the seller as a prototype of the iPhone 6 and it runs the prototype software that is believed to be used by Apple in testing of its phones. The seller, username kimberlyk1018, says that the handset was sent by accident and he gives 110% guarantee that this is an authentic Apple prototype device.
The listing says; ‘For sale is a brand new never used Apple iPhone 6 Prototype. Apple does NOT let these phones out of their possession yet I was accidentally sent one upon renewing my contract. As you can see from the photos, iOS8 has not been placed on this device, rather it is in the true developer mode. There are no FCC markings on the rear of the device or a model number. This is the real deal!!! The lightening port is red which is a sure sign of a prototype.’
Upon being contacted, Alex Kantor, the seller said; ‘’I determined that this iPhone was a version not meant for the consumer market after seeing the software version on it. I am an avid tech lover and I knew what this software was right away. It is actually called SwitchBoard and is only for internal Apple testing. This device is being sold as is. I cannot guarantee that it will make calls or that the camera will work. This is a once in a life time opportunity for you to take a part of.’
