As a part of 10th anniversary celebration of iPhone, the Company is honoring the founder with the inauguration of Steve Jobs theater located at Cupertino.. But what created more buzz about the iPhone 8/iPhone X are the constant leaks revealing the phone features prior to the event.

Benjamin Geskin, is the face behind some of the major information on i8 leaked online. It looks like the 20-year-old Economics and Business Administration student took Apple iPhone 8 as his assignment for the finals and aced it. In an interview with inverse he said, “So, it all started with other peoples’ leaks, and my feature was to make fast renderings. I wanted to show people how the products will look before the official announcement”.

Benjamin uses the information from different sources and glues them accordingly to design a conceptual image of the product. On inquiring why he indulges in such risky activities he replied that “I’m a big tech and Apple fan. It’s very interesting for me and I hope for the people, my followers”.

He is one of the main reason for all the speculations about i8 along with responsible for leaking the design of iPhone 8 along with its next Gen technology features such as face recognition unlocking system, a dual lens camera, an OLED screen without a home button, wireless charging, USB3.

However, Benjamin isn't only one spilling the beans on tech buzz,  an anonymous whisperer revealed the confidential information regarding iOS 11.  On Sunday, the BBC confirmed that an “anonymous source” leaked the information to tech portals 9to5Mac and Mac Rumours. The culprit is speculated to be an insider in the company as the acesse source to the software download was from Apple itself.

John Gruber reacting to the report said, “The BBC doesn’t say definitively that the leak was sent by an Apple employee, but I can state with nearly 100 percent certainty that it was," wrote Gruber. "I also think there’s a good chance Apple is going to figure out who it was”

Shame: betrayed many colleagues. No argument there.

Phone: Apple is rapidly narrowing list of suspects. What I’ve heard from multiple secs.

Grubber further reported, Apple must be looking for the leak spot and the responsible person, but more importantly the company is busy in preparation of tomorrow's event. Tim Cook will be taking the stage at Steve Job’s theater in less than 24 hours putting all the rumors to rest.
