Here's why this leaked photo of the Apple iPhone 7 is a fake

Thanks to sophisticated technology, sometimes it is very hard to find when an image of a hot upcoming handset is a fake. Then again, sometimes the answer is staring you right in the face. Last week, a leaked photo of what allegedly was the Apple iPhone 7 showed that it was missing a home button. While a major change, it certainly wasn't totally farfetched. These days, a fingerprint scanner could be placed inside a phone's display, and a the use of 3D Touch could replace the features found with a home button.

In another shot of the same phone tweeted by @Onleaks, you can see that the 3.5mm headset jack is gone, which is expected to be the case when the Apple iPhone 7 is unveiled in September. But if you look at the photo carefully, you can see that a reflection of the phone revealed that the iPhone in the picture originally had the earphone jack on the bottom of the device before it was photoshopped. Look at the picture at the bottom of this story. Can you see the earphone jack?

The Apple iPhone 7 will most likely launch sans the 3.5mm earphone jack, but we think it is much less likely that Apple decides to remove the Touch ID button for now.

This has shown typical Apple fanboys Photoshop level skill. I would rate it preschool level of course.

What does this leak have to do with Apple "fanboys"? Do you know who made the image? Or are you just randomly spouting crap.

How many "concept" LG or Samsung or Motorola HTC renderings have you seen? None or nearly none. Those that spend hours making iProduct "concept" renderings are either fanboys creaming over themselves or what they hope it'll look like, fanboys hoping other fanboys will cream themselves over what it might look like, or people that iFans understand how iFans behave and are either trolls or simply trying to make a a couple bucks with ad-hits because they know iFans will click that sh!t. This, and EVERY "concept render" has EVERYTHING to do with fanboys. For whichever reason. Hell, if were to don my tinfoil hat, I wouldn't be surprised if Apple wasn't behind some of this speculation BS. Not that it'd be necessary. iFans fuel themselves with their fervor. Disagree? Then explain the lines of people camping out every time a new device comes out that hasn't yet even been tested or reviewed.

Thing is, one must never trust teasers regarding Apple and... Ducati! If you're a rider like me, then you would probably remember all those teasers and spy shots of Ducati Scrambler! And when Ducati finally uneveiled it in EICMA Motor Show in Milan, it didn't match even with the most "authentic" spy shot...! Woah, I'm drifting away in my own thought... Old man, eh! Sorry and of course a happy G'Day!

Love ducati. My favorite is the monster. I love how that bike looks - none of that ninja jap body panels stuff - just pure bike.

Anybody who puts any faith in any "leak" or "render" before official images is blithering idiot. "Concept" images are a masterbatory waste of time.

This has to prove that MacOS has the worst version of Photoshop,users and fanboys. It's true you cant get anything done with a Mac, other than reading blog in a posh cafe. Did I mention Safari is worse than Edge? The least browser compatible with HTML5.
