Was this picture of an Apple engineer's lunch taken with the Apple iPhone 5?
PocketNow has come across a picture taken by an Apple engineer who was eating his lunch at the office. The picture, cropped down to 5MP (5.12 to be exact), was originally just shy of 8MP in resolution. Additionally, the lens used was recorded as 4.3mm f/2.4, which is much closer to what you would find on a point and shoot camera. The Apple iPhone 4 has a 3.85mm f/28 lens. If legit, this is the first test picture from the Apple iPhone 5 that has been found.

A tasty lunch and quite possibly the first test picture from the Apple iPhone 5

A tasty lunch and quite possibly the first test picture from the Apple iPhone 5

As we reported, the one constant in a universe full of rumored iPhone 5 specs is that the camera will be an 8MP shooter. Still, there is the possibility that the image is fake as PocketNow recently was fooled by a picture that was shot by a current Apple iPhone 4 and then put through an Apple iPad that had software installed that changed the EXIF data of the image. Nonetheless, because the photo was allegedly taken by an Apple engineer, it is believed to be genuine.

For some, the picture might make them hungry for the Apple iPhone 5, expected to launch just next month. For others, the picture just might make them hungry.

**UPDATE**
A reader at This is my next was able to process the picture a little to catch the reflection of the device that took the picture. Is this the first picture of the Apple iPhone 5?

Ok guys I took that picture. It's from an iPhone prototype the aliens left at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico. 3 nights ago I was abducted & given the prototype to take that picture. I am sorry but it's not the iPhone 5. lol

This is just the latest example of market churning in advance of release that Apple is famous for. Expect more of this type of activity. I am actually surprised that more rumors haven't leaked about the new camera in the latest iPhone. Must be time for Apple to feed the rumor machine.

hilarious that you fandroids are so anxious to point out that this isnt news that you come in, read the article and post multiple times. and this is the most commented story of the day.

you are the ones that fuel these stories. PA doesnt care if you dont like it. they just care that you come in, read and comment. congrats on making sure there are plenty more stories like this to come!

Well said, lol. Stop making these posts so popular damn it. Stop reading, stop commenting and if comments like those hardly get any views or response, it'll eventually stop. This is the same reason why Rebecca Black became famous.

This picture looks kind of blurry and lacks details, even the old Nokia N86 could take a lot better pictures than this.

LTE, probably.. quad core? doubt it. 10mpx would be only a minor improvement. They already have 16mpx cameras in the pipeline for android and windows phones within the next quarter or 2.

lol wow gemini - ever noticed there are a lot of "android fanboys" on this site? like almost 95% of the people here are "android fanboys"?

Maybe there's an explanation to that, don't you think? An alternative one. Very simple one too.

Sushi isn't pretentious

Ah no, bolaG, taco just thinks that all those who use the iPhone are worthy elite people, while those who don't are the lowest scumbags and live in the slums. Oh and probably should be disposed off.

Wait - that reminds of someone..

dont be upset by taco. He still lives with his parents. Its easy to pretend to be pretensious when your not spending your own money.

That said, sushi isnt pretensious. Only a moron would think that sushi is some kind of exclusive food.
I know a great place that does all u can eat for 14 bux and its made fresh in front of you. cant beat that. :)
