A customer mistakenly sent an iPhone 6 prototype by their network is taking full advantage of the situation and has put the device up for sale on eBay.
The device, which Apple would typically use for internal testing, is currently listed for approximately $60,000. The listing says: "For sale is a brand new, never used Apple iPhone 6 prototype. Apple does NOT let these phones out of their possession yet I was accidentally sent one upon renewing my contract. As you can see from the photos, iOS 8 has not been placed on this device, rather it is in true developer mode."
However, the seller warns that they cannot guarantee that it will actually make calls or that the camera will work. So, if you do win the auction, you could be getting your hands on an expensive and unique paperweight.
The auction will run for three more days, so it’s likely that the price will continue to increase, particularly in its final minutes. How much would you pay for this one of a kind device that may or may not work?
