A prototype Apple iPhone 12 Pro recently surfaced online, giving us a first look at early versions of the company’s current flagship. The device arrived in a Pacific Blue variant and even ran on iOS 14 but without the user interface.

Images of the iPhone 12 Pro prototype were shared on Twitter by Giulio Zompetti earlier today (January 14, 2020). In the picture we can observe the latest version of SwitchBoard being present, in the nonUI version of iOS 14. For those who don’t know, the Cupertino-based giant uses SwitchBoard as an internal tool that hosts various utilities for testing a number of features on the new iPhones.

We can observe a number of utilities previously seen in the image like Console, USBHost, QRCode, Reliability, as well as new ones like Ness and Astro, according to a 9To5Mac report. Looking at the device itself, it appears that this prototype Apple iPhone 12 Pro arrived with a slightly darker shade of the Pacific Blue color variant, available on the iPhone 12 series. Although that could also be due to dim lighting in the scene.
In other words, Apple might have gone for a darker aesthetic for the blue-colored version of the iPhone 12 Pro before settling on the current final version, which is available in the markets. Sadly, we have no way of confirming this and it’s speculation, so take it with a pinch of salt.
