IPhone 12 Pro prototype shown – with a different operating system instead of iOS


Giulio Zompetti, a collector of rare Apple gadgets, has shown another addition to his extensive collection. He got one of the prototypes of the iPhone 12 Pro. Externally, this smartphone looks the same as the commercial version of the device available in stores, but there are several important differences.

The prototype iPhone 12 Pro does not have iOS 14. Instead of this operating system, another one is used – SwitchBoard. SwitchBoard does not have a full-fledged graphical interface, only a few testing and debugging utilities are available. It is with the help of this platform that Apple engineers check the performance of various smartphone functions. It is not available to ordinary users, since it is necessary only for engineering purposes and is absolutely unsuitable in everyday life.


Another difference from the commercially available iPhone 12 Pro is the color. The body of the prototype is dark blue, while the version on sale is noticeably lighter.
