First Photos taken w/ iPhone surface online

Table of Contents

MobileGuerilla this weekend uncovered what are very likely to be the first photos taken from an actual iPhone that we’ve seen. Now, the way they found them at first seems like it could be obviously faked.

They simply searched for “taken with an Apple iPhone” on Google, and these photos came up on a Flickr with the the phrase on it. The phrase is automatically generated by Flickr based on the EXIF data from the camera that the pictures were taken from. (The images have since been removed by the way)

Mac Rumors did some detective work, and traced the Flickr account back to a LinkedIn profile which reveals that the account owner is a Program Manager at Apple in the Consumer Electronics industry. So these are very likely legit.

Kudos to both MobileGuerilla for find them, and Mac Rumors for confirming them.

  1. i can’t quite see the hype about that. it’s just two perfectly ordinary handycam pics… and not of too impressive quality, either. so what if they were taken with an iphone or any random other device out there? it’s not that apple has developed a completely new lens for the iphone…

  2. No, phil, but it gives us an idea as to the quality of the pics that we’ll be able to take with the iPhone.

    It’s certainly not the most groundbreaking news in the world, but I think it’s worth a Sunday morning post.
