iPhone 6 Prototype With Switchboard OS Shows Up On eBay With An Astronomical Price Tag
If you thought than a regular iPhone 6 featured an expensive price tag, then wait till you get a load of the price tag present on the product listed on eBay. The listing had gone up earlier today and while 9to5mac reports that it saw a price tag of $4,999, the phone now carries a price of $8,600, which will definitely make you wonder about purchasing the regular version of Apple’s iPhone 6.
According to the details posted by the seller; the device had been bought from a friend and it features no FCC logos or serial number on the back whatsoever. Furthermore, the only elements that will make you feel that you’re looking at a phone manufactured by the Cupertino tech giant is the Apple logo and ‘iPhone’ branding. Now, for the moment that you have all been waiting for, this particular iPhone is running Apple’s internal debugging software called ‘SwitchBoard’.
Just in case you did not know, it’s often believed that devices running this particular OS are more hackable and therefore able to reach phenomenal prices like the one you can see in the image below. Additional information reveals that the smartphone features a red lightning dock port along with a serial number of C39NW00KG876.
