First iPhone 5 Unboxing Photos Reveal New Layout & Traveling Case for EarPods

Apple’s new iPhone 5 launches this Friday, but the first unboxing of the device has already gone public thanks to Boy Genius Reports and its reader source.

As you can see in the pictures embedded below, Apple has slightly changed the overall packaging for the iPhone 5. Rather than simply being wrapped in a disposable plastic tie, a superior design isn’t the only thing that the EarPods boast over their predecessors.┬áThe EarPods, as an additional bonus, come stowed in a tiny travelling carry case for the iPhone user to easily transport around.

Also included is the usual power adapter that is used to charge your device in conjunction with the brand new Lightning to USB cable, which is also included.

Now that I’ve seen all of the pictures, I’m just left wondering how exactly BGR’s reader managed to get his hands on the iPhone 5 so early. The first round of pre-orders have already shipped and will be embargoed by Apple to ensure delivery on Friday. It isn’t uncommon, however, for a few devices to slip past the UPS/FedEx embargo, considering the companies have to keep track of hundreds of thousands if not millions of units.
