What you need to know
- Your hot new iPhone 12 has a secret.
- The box has a classic iPod hidden inside it.
- You have to hope this was done on purpose.
The new iPhone boxes ditch the charger and earbuds for the first time, allowing them to sport a new layout. The paperwork and Lightning cable just happen to be laid out in such a way that they make the box look like a classic iPod. Click wheel and all.
The charming coincidence – or was it? – was spotted by one Redditor and once you've seen that iPod there's no way you're going to unsee it. Not that you should want to. Who doesn't love the classic iPod shape?
Pretty cool, right? I'm going to choose to believe that isn't accidental in the slightest and someone somewhere in Cupertino is chuckling to themselves right now.
