First iPhone 5 Unboxing Photos Reveal Packaging Layout and EarPods Travel Case

BGR shares a few photos of what seems to be the first publicly-revealed unboxing of the iPhone 5. It is unclear how the source was able to obtain an iPhone 5, but the photos show the box itself and the rear of the device, as well as the trio of accessories that are included in the box: EarPods, power adapter, and Lightning to USB cable.


The EarPods appear to be packaged identically to the standalone retail version of the new Apple earphones, including a small travel case.

The first round of pre-orders are already en route to their destinations, although Apple has arranged for carriers to hold deliveries until the official Friday launch. It is not unheard of, however, for a handful of deliveries to slip through early.

Related roundups: iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6

My word. If I was taking pictures of the very first iPhone 5 received, I'd at least make sure there were no fingerprints....

Look at all of those fingerprints on the back. I'm glad I chose to go white this time. No racist.


I think the plastic is still on top of it. I hope cause it looks like crap and I ordered black lol
