    I'm wondering who the hand model is who gets to touch the iPhone in the commercials. Like with everything about Apple, their actor's identities are unknown.

    But this hand model has perfect hands. What kind of person has hands like that? Could it be CGI?

    If not then whose hands are those?

    I don't think the guy is fat. If it is guy. This is MacRumors, and it is a rumor that the hands are CGI. I actually had to think about that. The way the hands slide in, they never waver. Once the hands stop in the center of the screen, that's it. They don't move. While one finger is tapping away at the screen, the other hand is like concrete. Never moves.

    I wonder if the guy is hot?

    Usually when making such videos, they tend to do a lot of takes, then edit it together to make it appear flawless.

    I helped with a demo video of our product once where they would have me click on an object and ask me not to move the mouse till it opened. Later during editing they would cut out the 5 second delay in-between to make it look a lot faster than it really was.

    I ended up sitting in the AV room for about 4 hours for a 10 minute demo and the final video was seriously impressive. :D

    I did feel like the nails are digitally enlarged or something. I would even bet that the hands probably have makeup on them. You can't see any blood flow.

    HuH? I look at my hands and can't see any blood flow either. Not really sure what you're trying to say.

    I've no idea who's hands they are ... but they have got to be the smallest hands on the planet!. Can't be that they wanted to make the phone look bigger!. Surely not.:)

    ^ You're right. I guess we'll never know.

    I hope they use him for further iPhone commercials. I mean, look at them.

    I could stare at this for hours. Especially the close-up version.

    The phone is stuck to a stand that's why it never moves. The hand just sits behind the phone like it is holding it. And yes I'm sure the hand has make-up on it and has been digitally enhanced to be flawless.

    Movies and TV both do this.

    It's funny you should say that. Rumor has it that Apple actually switched hand models!

    They used "forced perspective" to make the iPhone look smaller. I hope this is not true.

    What an outrage! The first guy has some sexy hands.

    But now, they have started to use CGI hands, they say.
