Alleged iPhone 6 prototype pops up on eBay for $60,000

Chances are the folks at Apple have gone through many variations of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus before arriving at its final design and choice of hardware. Well if you were ever curious as to what the iPhone 6 could have been like, someone by the name of kimberlyk1018 is selling on eBay what she claims is a prototype of the iPhone 6.

An auction listing has appeared on eBay with the seller offering what they claim is a prototype model of Apple’s iPhone 6. A handful of pictures are included showing the device running Apple’s own diagnostic mode and test apps, and it’s notably missing any FCC markings or other text on the back, other than the “iPhone” logo. Surely there must be a logical, detailed explanation of how the seller came to get their hands on a prototype version of Apple’s latest smartphone, right? Not really. eBay user kimberlyk1018 says they pre-ordered an iPhone 6 through Verizon, renewing their existing contract in the process, but received what is said to be a non-retail, 64GB model of the 4.7 inch screen device in white/silver. There is no mention of contacting Verizon or Apple, or attempting to send it back.
