The latest set of leaked Apple iPhone 5 images have fooled many but are in fact faked.

The crop of images circulated round the web yesterday with many sites saying they are authentic. However, the photos posted on sharing site Flickr were rendered in modelling software Rhinoceros 3D.

The images depict what the iPhone 5 could look like based on various pieces of leaked information, including a 4in screen and a smaller dock connector. It also shows a metal rear cover, bottom mounted headphone port and larger speakers.

It is still unknown as to when the iPhone 5 will launch and even if it will be called the iPhone 5. It's likely that the smartphone will tip up this autumn, possibly September, in-line with the launch of iOS 6 which Apple announced this week at its worldwide developer conference (WWDC).
