Create Your Own Faked iPhone 4.0 Screenshots

People love trying to trick us with fake shots of unreleased Apple products. We recently received the shot above of the supposed iPhone 4.0 firmware, which we know for a fact is a fake. Can you do better?

It's really easy to fake a screenshot on the iPhone. Simply make what you want in Photoshop, load it onto your phone as a photo and take a photo of the phone with it on the screen. That's clearly what the person who made the above shot did. The above shot is a jailbreak app, but you get the idea.


So what do you hope to see in the iPhone 4.0 software? Go nuts! Send your best entries to me at with iPhone Fakes in the subject line. Save your files as JPGs or GIFs under 800k in size, and use a FirstnameLastname.jpg naming convention using whatever name you want to be credited with. Send your work to me by next Tuesday morning, and I'll pick three top winners and show off the rest of the best in our Gallery of Champions. Get to it!
