The Clinton Archipelago unfortunately
The root of the url is buyiphone.apple.com. Apple's website to buy iPhones has the root url store.apple.com.

It's clear you don't know much about how domains work.

That is part of the apple.com domain. You can make subdomains with any prefix you want before the apple.com.

If this is a joke, just know that the URL in the address bar is an apple domain. I can't tell you if the webpage below that came from that URL though.

My point was, that APPLE does not use the "buyiphone" prefix in their url. A quick trip to Apple.com and then navigating to the store page for iPhone's shows you that.

EDIT: Okay I checked out the site and it redirects back to store.apple.com. In any case the image in the OP doesn't come up, even after enabling cookies.

First of all, I hope people aren't stupid enough to think simply entering a URL will always give the same exact result at every computer. Second of all, I hope people aren't stupid enough to believe this.

There are only two logical answers to this: someone faked it (either the entire picture, or parts of it), or someone at Apple simply entered the wrong digit.

^^I agree. I only did it for **** and giggles, but more than sure its fake. Not the first time something like this has been produced.

Whether real or not, it tells us absolutely nothing about the phone, other than, what we have already come to assume, it will look like the iPhone 5. No specs, no features, means no excitement (from me anyway).

This is 100% Fake. The latest smartphone from Apple is the iPhone 5, followed by the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4. Apple's next smartphone to release in 2013 will be announced in the Fall of 2013. (around Sept/Oct). It is widely expected from rumors that Apple's next smartphone will be named iPhone 5S. iPhone 6 expected in 2014.

I tried with Chrome and IE number 6 came up. Firefox showed 5. Could be fonts issue. My bad.. I know 6 is not out yet I was just surprised to see 6 on Apples site.
Thats all. relax.

That's clearly not Apple's website, try harder next time... Unless you were serious, in which case, try to learn how to read a URL.
