tumblr post 150x150 Sophos warns Apple fans for iPhone 5 phishing emailMany of you probably already know that the iPhone 5 release is still months away, its even to early to start rumors about the new device. Apple hasn’t announced anything and there are no technical details known. But there are people that don’t know everything about Apple products; these users could be a easy target for phishing. Security firm Sophos warns users that a phishing email is released, which claims that Apple and blogging service Tumblr will give everyone a free iPhone 5. The email also mentions some technical details, such as 4G support, improved battery, better display, FaceTime 3G support and 3D functions.

The claim that Apple and Tumblr are giving out free iPhones should be reason enough for you to immediately delete the email. Apple never organizes promotional campaigns with external parties, and giving stuff away isn’t the way Apple works, especially not with an unannounced product.
