Someone has been sent an iPhone 6 prototype 'accidentally', with the person throwing it up to eBay straight away with a starting bid of $999. The Beverly Hills, California based iPhone 6 owner has offered free shipping if the price exceeds $4,000 - but at the time of writing, the current bid was a massive $58,660.




The iPhone 6 prototype does not feature FCC markets on the rear of the device, or a model number, and its Lightning port is red - proving that it is indeed a prototype. iOS 8 isn't on the device, with the iPhone 6 sitting in Developer Mode. 'kimberlyk1018' has said on the eBay page: "This device is being sold as is. I cannot guarantee that it will make calls or that the camera will work. However I can guarantee you that the device is a 64gb iPhone 6 which was sent to me from Verizon. The device comes with the box, charger, headphones and wall charger as well as all the paperwork. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. This is a once in a life time opportunity for you to take a part of".


But, $58,660 for the iPhone 6 prototype? How many of the recent bids would you say are Apple's bids to get their prototype back?
