Apple iPhone 6 conference video was faked; here's how it was done

Apple iPhone 6 conference video was faked; here's how it was done
On Saturday, we showed you a video of an empty conference room at the Moscone Center as workers were quickly setting up the venue for WWDC 2014, which starts tomorrow. What made the video interesting was the image of the Apple iPhone 6 that was apparently being projected onto a screen in front of the room. This made it look as though Apple was going to be making a presentation for the new iPhone, sometime from June 2nd through June 6th.

But as we've cautioned many times, it always pays to be cynical around this time of the year. As it turns out, the video was actually a forgery made up of two different parts. A picture of the conference room was posted by Reddit member "likesthings," which he found on Google. He matched up the photograph and it perfectly fit with one of the frames of the video.

With this information, we can obviously conclude that the forger took a video of a WWDC conference room, and added pictures of the iPhone 6 mockups that have been making their way around the web. This way, he created the illusion that Apple would be introducing at least one of its new iPhone models this coming week.

While Apple might not be showing off the iPhone 6 at WWDC, there is still the possibility that the long-awaited Apple iWatch will be making an appearance in the Moscone Center this week. Banners being placed at the venue confirm that iOS 8 will be introduced at the developer conference.


Thanks for the tip, Radu!

8 months ago Why can't apple improve something so simple as battery life ?? Friends have complained at charging the iPhone 5 as much as 4 times in one day!!! That's terrible . Samsung on the other hand can go 3 days on one charge with a bigger screen and fast processer . This is where all the fancy tech iPhone has, is made redundant when you have to turn down the brighness just to see you through the end of the day . 550 pounds is a joke . Who wants to pay that for cheap phone in a bling cover. Apple have been left so far behind the competition now that they are sterling ideas from other manufactures. Colours from Nokia . Fast shutter camera from samsung, and pull down menus and live wallpapers from android . There's just nothing new in iPhone anymore very lame upgrade and very overpriced when you look at sony, HTC and Samsung. 0 Reply

But Samsung fans aren't exactly the pinnacle of humanity either....why are you so proud to compare yourself to them and put yourself into the same category. No one in their right minds thinks highly of Samsung fans either.

Yeah LOL. Registering your nipple to unlock the 5S's fingerprint scanner was an awesome "hack".

"Ugly and featureless," as opposed to how mainstream media all over the world and countless users using the iPhones feel. So hipster. And the way haters who never held an iPhone or enjoyed the App Store but somehow still manage to convince themselves that people buy iPhone merely for its logo never ceases to amaze me.

There're stupid people in both camps. Some iPhone folk are dumb, some Android folk are dumb. This should in no way, shape, or form imply that everyone who buys a specific model phone is dumb.

The funny thing is that they have all the money in the world for making great inventions and pretty much blast everyone out of the water with every damn thing, but they just can’t. They continue in the same fashion as before, making little to no changes at all to their precious iPhone. Same screen, same format, even the icon layout is the same as 2007. They completely turn to their own customers, the people who don’t require changes. This won’t recruit new ones, just keep feeding the old.

my friend has an iphone 5s and it's a beautiful experience but it's not for me not because i hate it but because i'm simply a tech geek and would rather something else now look at that statement ^ are you done ? good tech geeks make 5% of the phone market so we count towards nothing i can tell for sure that most companies don't give a damn about you or me or any of us unlike Samsung who shoves a SH*T ton of useless stuff on their phone and no one uses ( i know that for a fact because i have friends that bought note 3s first few weeks they showed off this and that ran around amazing not etc... and ever since never seen them use any of that stuff) a normal consumer which is about a 85% these are all rough estimates btw (leaving 10% as big corporates and others) would a buy the next phone because they've enjoyed the experience on their current phone and want to have it again so why drastically change the experience when you have a well set out eco-system and people love it you gotta think as a business not from a personal preference but from money making and right now apple is making money when you think about it although they sell less they release one phone a year (who the heck buys the 5c haven't seen one EVER) and are the second biggest competitor and their phones cost more and thus they're happy and as bonus so are their costumers if you're not gonna bother with a constructive reply please don't bother replying

As long as Apple sticks with the horrid iOS 7, the iPhone will always remain a failure not so much in a hardware design sense in which it still solidly leads the market but in software where it’s seen as trailing Android and WP8 in usability. The new iOS 7.1 redesign of the slide to turn off button is particularly bad as it’s almost an indistinct blob on the screen whereas iOS 6 was a bold red scrollbar in glorious 3-D with big lettering. Ive has failed on so many levels to design a usable iOS 7 UI with the result that the current design is inferior in so many ways to Android and WP8. The sense of style that users of iOS devices had in terms of interacting with the software has been replaced by a dysfunctional utilitarian Soviet style design that harks back to 70′s of mono block design and introduces nothing new to the UI or the way in which the user interacts with the UI. If going backwards is deemed going forwards by Apple, I fear for the future.
