    Hard to tell but it looks like a picture of the bar code area you get on the bottom of iPhone/iPad boxes?

    If genuine, then the guy has some serious stones lol.

    Any proof that that's actually Phil Schiller he sent it to?

    Thats fake. Any picture using iMessage would not be in a small bubble like that.

    I think he meant if the attached pic is in landscape.

    But i don't think that's the real Phil Schiller, how would that person get the direct contact info?

    na I'm sure its real, he blurred the serial number.. he could of also cropped the image, which is why its in a smaller bubble.

    Ok it could be real. The guy would have had to crop it though.

    I cropped a photo and here it is :

    As far as Phil Schiller. Lots of people could have him as a contact. I have Jonny Ive's and I don't even know him :)

    This is probably an oversight on my part, buy who is Chronic?

    and why would he be texting Phil?

    If this is real, it seems like a huge risk. I mean wouldn't Phil Schiller know who it was?

    I tip my hat to you sir.

    Not only did you get me to break my NDA but you found out my bad habit too !!

    I believe Chronic is a hacker dude that might be an intern at Apple.

    Just because they sent it to him doesn't mean he is the one who leaked it. In fact, he probably isn't even authorized for such contact or knowledge of the device which is probably why he sent the text in the first place, to let "Phil" know he knows about it.
