The entire world is going crazy to find out what the next iPhones will look like, may it be Apple fans or its critics. Apple’s efforts to keep the phones secret are going strong in competition to those made by the world for disclosing the looks of the new phone.

The iPhones are shipped from China to the US, covered in stealth black cases, which show nothing but a small portion of the display. On the sides of the stealth case, there are strips of yellow tape which will identify any tampering with the casing. The phone even includes a passport that reports the performance of the phone during testing.

Sonny Dickson, who is known for reliable inside details from Apple, sent the images of the stealth packed iPhones to MacRumors. The MacRumors page titled ‘Dickson told MacRumors’ features all the leaks provided by Sonny Dickson.

Dickson mentions,

“Each component or product that is tested they document in the page. The person writes their initials next to it and any notes about it passing or failing or any other comments. It makes its way through each test/person. It then is finally sent with its ‘passport’ from China to Apple.”

According to Dickson, the purpose of the passport is quality assurance and testing control.

The images that appeared on MacRumors seem to be of iPhone 6 Plus. To keep track of the product, while it is on its way from China to the US; the company has engraved a QR code at the back of every phone.

Apple seems to have an obsession with keeping its gadgets secret, but that does not mean they are never revealed. A photo of the iPhone 7 Plus was published on a Chinese website Bastille Post, earlier in 2016. The actual phone was released later and was the same as the one leaked on the site.

Apple has made serious attempts to keep its 10th-anniversary phone a secret, yet, a lot of rumors have surfaced. Let us wait and watch as to how many of these rumors happen to be true.
