  • Apple Goof-up Shows iPhone 5c With Touch ID on New Lightning Dock Web Page


    Unless this is the new iPhone 6c that was inadvertently leaked ahead of its time, Apple has just posted what appears to be an iPhone 5c with a Touch ID sensor in place of the typical Home Button on its very own Web site.

    The strange iPhone 5c with Touch ID appears on the Web Page for the brand-new Lightning Dock. It's clearly a goof-up on Apple's part, but also a major overlook by a company that should know its own products.

    The device is clearly of the iPhone 5c flavor, as it has a colored plastic backing. All models of the iPhone 5, 5s, 6, and 6 Plus have a space gray, gold, or silver aluminum backing and not a pink plastic backing.

    This slight graphical depiction error will, without a doubt, be pulled from and revised by those in charge of the Web site's design as soon as it is noticed by the company.

    Update: Apple has updated the image by removing the Touch ID sensor and has replaced it with the original Home Button.

      It could be a 5c variation with 5s internal hardware, which includes the Touch ID. So either Apple screwed up, or this was intentional to get people to talk, just like all those "leaked" music videos, or trailers etc. Either way, Apple will get some advertising from this photo. Very interesting though, as it has photos of an iPhone 6, and in the picture, it's smaller than the iPhone 6, and the size of the rest. I did notice the other iPhones have covered bumpers/cases on them. I'm wondering if they did it to see how well people paid attention, and see if they could get us all talking and excited for upcoming products.

      It could also be a legit 5c, but they photoshopped the white circle out to keep it relevant with the rest of their products.

      It was two separate pictures that were photoshopped together. Silly web designers want to make everything pretty, so lets used a colored back iPhone instead of the bland gray one. Oh well...

      I couldn't tell you why, unless you had a browser cache problem. Here is the replacement image that has been posted on Apple's site:

      I see that pic as well as the last one, but the second and sixth pics are blue with touchid.

      I tried in another browser that never went to that page.

      Here's a screenshot https://archive.is/ZKY6f, which links to the image, click the second thumbnail, to get http://store.storeimages.cdn-apple.c...=1432157993079, or https://archive.is/OqbMf

      See also https://web.archive.org/web/20150522...lightning-dock, saved just now, with the pics still there (2 and 6 from left).

      One pics was removed, but not all of them, apparently.

      That appears to be an image of an iPhone 6 with the blue silicone protective case on it.

      I'm sure you got my PM in reply to yours, but that's an iPhone 6 with a case.
