The first photo shows off some of the internal apps that Apple uses as part of the SwitchBoard operating system. The second photo focuses on the back of the iPhone 12 Pro, showing off the Pacific Blue color that rolled out when Apple announced the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max in October.
This is the first iPhone 12 Pro prototype we’ve seen, but it’s certainly not the only notable Apple prototype in recent memory. In December, an Apple Watch prototype also popped up on Twitter showing off an early build of watchOS and a watch inside of a security case.
