Long before the release of the iPhone 4, most of the information about the new smartphone was leaked to the Web after an Apple employee forgot a prototype smartphone in a bar, which was then sold to Gizmodo.
On the YouTube channel DongleBookPro showed a prototype of the iPhone 4, which was called the Death Star iPhone. Then the company experimented with a new approach that was supposed to minimize information leakage. Apple passed prototypes to partners that didn’t look like the iPhone.
Most notable about this prototype is the Star Wars Death Star logo instead of the Apple logo on the back. In addition, a transparent case was also created for this prototype, which for some reason did not protect its lower part.
The Death Star iPhone runs iOS 4 and also contains iPhone brand names up to the iPhone 13 series. Also interestingly, Apple hid the screws behind the SIM tray by removing them from the bottom panel, whereas the iPhone 4 did. visible.
The prototype did not receive a Retina screen, and it also uses a different display driver compared to the retail version of the iPhone 4.

“Reinvent the telephone”. iPhone went on sale exactly 15 years ago
On this day, fifteen years ago, the new iPhone smartphone, created by Apple under the leadership of the late Steve Jobs, officially went on sale.
The first iPhone was announced by Steve Jobs on January 9, 2007 and went on sale on June 29, 2007. “iPod, phone, mobile internet communicator…these are not three separate devices,” Jobs said at the time. “Today, Apple is going to reinvent the phone.”
Since its introduction, the iPhone has changed the world and the mobile technology industry. It was only 74 days after launch before Apple announced that it had sold over 1 million smartphones. At that time, the device was offered at a price of $500.
The iPhone has evolved a lot over the years, with advanced features, top performance, great cameras, and an App Store that the first iPhone didn’t have. Moreover, the original iPhone did not have one of the most popular features in history – copy and paste.
In an interview published ahead of the anniversary, Apple CMO Greg Joswiak said that Samsung copied the iPhone and simply added a larger screen.
