We know from recent years that iPhone leaks can be fairly predictable at times. When things start to get rolling, we start seeing CAD pictures and then we start seeing pictures of components when nearing launch of the new iPhone. Depending on which type of component, we get the appropriate full-scale mockup leaks.
As with the iPhone 8, we’ve seen several leaks already but the new unique leak today may give us a very rare insight like we’ve never seen before.
One of the biggest source of leaks is Foxconn, one of Apple’s biggest manufacturing partners. Apple generally is very good at keeping things under wraps within its own ranks but leaks start to happen from outside sources that are out of their control. It’s very hard to control leaks when you have thousands of people working on production lines. Heck, even the production lines themselves are rare to see.
On Monday, we came across two leaked videos that give a very rare inside look at the iPhone 8 production line. This could very well be the very first look at the iPhone production line in action. There’s of course no 100 percent guarantee that these videos are legitimate, so take it with a pinch of salt. The videos were posted on Chinese microblogging site Weibo (via Slashleaks), so we don’t know for certain that these are authentic.
