Early iPhone4

Anyone knows where the image of an iDevice in iTunes comes from? Is it part of iTunes or is it sent from the iDevice to be displayed in iTunes? --M2m 22:59, 22 January 2012 (MST)

I'm pretty sure the device doesn't send any image. iTunes just detects the device code and shows the according image, similar to what Windows 7 does. -- http 00:28, 23 January 2012 (MST)
That would mean the images are part of iTunes - wonder where these are...--M2m 04:27, 23 January 2012 (MST)
For Windows 7 device icons, read this: [1] I assume iTunes uses this or a very similar technique. The image doesn't have to be in the executable. --http 05:11, 23 January 2012 (MST)
In Mac OS X, these icons can be found in It's probably the same file in Windows. --pjakuszew 05:43, 23 January 2012 (MST)
Now I just need a working ressource editor under Lion... ResKnife Cocoa for 10.7 can't extract files...--M2m 10:25, 23 January 2012 (MST)


Is this device classed as a prototype? Sure it runs SwitchBoard, but that is where it stops. SwitchBoard can be installed on any device. As another admin suggested, may it be better fit on the page? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gramster1 (talk) 05:53, November 26, 2014.

I think it would, because it does seem to be an actual prototype. Now, if someone could prove me wrong, I wwould change my mind. --Awesomebing1 (talk) 14:01, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
Personally, I don't think this iPhone 6 is a prototype. Every single iOS device gets tested with SwitchBoard before being restored to the production software and going on sale. It is likely that this iPhone didn't pass the quality check and it was to be rejected, but it ended up to a customer by mistake. The red lightening port could be something to help workers distinguishing which iPhones didn't pass the tests. --Jaggions (talk) 21:54, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
