Purported iPhone 5 test photo appears online

A new photo claimed to have been taken with an iPhone 5 has appeared online. Pocketnow reports that the photo was taken by an Apple engineer eating his lunch at work, a claim that appears to be corroborated by the GPS data found in photo’s EXIF data. The EXIF data also lists the photo as being taken by an iPhone 4, but having been cropped from an original size of 3264 x 2448—nearly eight megapixels—down to 2235 x 2291, or just 5.12 megapixels, and having been shot with a 4.3mm lens at f/2.4, a wider aperture than is possible on the iPhone 4’s 3.85mm, f/2.8 lens.
