Individuals were stopped at a German airport and officials confiscated iPhone 5s (or knockoff iPhones) from them on July 21st and German officials are working with Apple to determine the origin and authenticity of the confiscated iPhone 5s. If the iPhone-5-counterfeiting a resemblance to the real iPhone, then Apple will certainly be very interested in keeping all the pictures and information under wraps……………
Five devices that are suspected of being either iPhone 5s or knockoffs were confiscated at the Munster-Osnabruck airport on July 21st and it still isn’t certain if they were real or fake but it is newsworthy that Germans are confiscating iPhones, real or fake, at the Airports since there are so many fake iPhones coming out of China, India and Sears these days. The men in possession of the devices were coming from Turkey. It appears that the the customs officials are working with Apple to determine the origin of the devices. As Benm.at posted:
All the fanboys are currently waiting for the iPhone 5, which is expected to launch in fall. But there is – as always – a lot of mystery about it. So it’s even more spectacular that there might was an iPhone 5 between six Apple smartphones that were confiscated at the airport of Münster-Osnabrück. “It’s possible that one of the devices in an iPhone 5″, the customs spokeswoman confirms.All of it happened on July 21st, when two men that came back from Turkey were controlled. As benm.at claims, this was done because there was a knife in a bag seen thanks to the radiograph.
The customs officers weren’t sure if the smartphones were a rip-off, but a comparison with the so-called “E-Agent” made it seem possible. Of course, the appearance of an iPhone 5 was more spectacular. “We can neither confirm nor deny if it is a real device and consequently industry spying”.
Apple was informed about the found. “We are waiting for a response of the manufacturer that tells us what to do.” Photos of the found won’t be published until then. “It could be industry spying, so you have to handle such picture with special sensibility”, said the spokeswoman.
