Apple has a secret iPhone model

WE HAVE all heard about the secret menu at McDonalds which includes the Land, Sea and Air Burger — a beef, chicken and Filet-O-Fish patty stacked in one bun.

While it might not sound like the tastiest snack, there is something fun about the mystery of a hidden menu.

It’s this love of clandestine products that makes news about Apple’s secret iPhone model so exciting.

Yes, you read that correct. Apple has a secret iPhone, although you won’t be able to purchase it like you can with the Monster Mac — a classic Big Mac with eight patties.

The mystery iPhone, never formally announced by Apple, has recently been revealed through newly declassified documents.

A filing with the United States Federal Communications Commission revealed Apple has produced a gold iPhone X — currently customers can only buy Silver and Space Grey.

After taking 180 days to become declassified, the filing was released with pictures of the model from multiple angles.

The document showed the gold device was created before the premium handset was announced last September — a period when Apple was rumoured to launch three colour options.

It’s unclear why Apple scrapped the colour, especially given it has offered gold colour options for other iPhone devices in the past.

It’s possible Apple could debut the gold iPhone X as a special edition model later this year like it recently did with its special edition red iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

Another possibility could see Apple release the gold iPhone X model when it announces its new range of devices in September.

Rumours are already swirling around Apple’s forthcoming products, which are tipped to be called the iPhone 11 or iPhone X2.

Leading Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said he believed the company would release two different sizes of the premium handset — both 5.8 and 6.5-inch iPhone X2 models.

Both phones will apparently have dual-lens cameras, stainless steel frames and are expected to land alongside a cheaper 6.1-inch handset possibly called the iPhone 9.

Kuo also suggested the 5.8-inch model would have a battery 10 per cent larger than the iPhone X, while the 6.5-inch model could see a 25 per cent size increase.
