The alleged Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 6 that TMZ has posted photos of, is a fake, Ben Parr told CNBC in an interview. Parr, the cofounder and managing partner of DominateFund, made the comment after TMZ posted what it claims are photos of the yet-to-be-unveiled iPhone 6 in an article that says “geeks” to “drool” over the newest smartphone from the Cupertino, California-based consumer electronics giant.
When questioned about the supposedly new smartphone from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Parr unequivocally said it is a hoax.
“I personally don’t [think they are legitimate photos]and I’ll give two reasons why. There are multiple ones, but one is, like 9to5Mac and others have done, they did an analysis of the actual front screen, the actual OS [operating system]that was on it. There were some mistakes that the pretenders made. For example, naming the app ’email’ instead of ‘mail’ [is a mistake]because Apple never calls their mailing app ’email’. Another one being just that the calendar app’s fonts are off because the calendar app is different than all the other apps because it changes dynamically day to day,” Parr explained.
Parr was referencing the analysis done by 9to5Mac wherein the publication said that the iPhone 6 TMZ claims it has is just another replica product. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is believed to be revealing the iPhone 6 some time this coming month. The timing coincides with the traditional release cycle of the iPhone-maker.
Meanwhile, Parr also pointed out another reason why the TMZ Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 6 is a fake.
“The other thing is in hardware. The glass, it doesn’t go all the way to the edge which is something that Apple always does. It’s a really good knockoff, but I believe it’s a knockoff,” he said.
