BGR shares a few photos of what seems to be the first publicly-revealed unboxing of the iPhone 5. It is unclear how the source was able to obtain an iPhone 5, but the photos show the box itself and the rear of the device, as well as the trio of accessories that are included in the box: EarPods, power adapter, and Lightning to USB cable.

The EarPods appear to be packaged identically to the standalone retail version of the new Apple earphones, including a small travel case.

The first round of pre-orders are already en route to their destinations, although Apple has arranged for carriers to hold deliveries until the official Friday launch. It is not unheard of, however, for a handful of deliveries to slip through early.

My word. If I was taking pictures of the very first iPhone 5 received, I'd at least make sure there were no fingerprints....

I wonder if that saves money to package them as retail. On one hand, they can mass produce those and just throw them in as a convenience, but it also uses more materials and such.

I'm thinking it may not be so much of a money saver but more so of a quality approach, it does look a lot nicer and higher quality this way.

Look at all of those fingerprints on the back. I'm glad I chose to go white this time. No racist.
