For fans and followers of various Apple leaks like the most recent ones about the new smart phones of the giant tech company, then it is about time you get to know better Sonny Dickson. The Aussie teen is the one behind the leaks of various iPhones (iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C) and iPads.
Apple CEO Tim Cook may have assured everyone that they will keep it stricter when it comes to the privacy of their new reveals, but it seems it's not enough to stop a youngster like Dickson from releasing his much talked about Apple gadget leaks.
Who is Sonny Dickson?
According to a post by BGR Your Mobile Life Web site, the teenager started with a startup repair company for phones which he simply called as Sonny's Repair. This became the opportunity for him to get in touch with sellers of phone parts in China who also eventually became his credible source for the iPhone and iPad leaks.
Since then, he has earned credibility for being one of the most trusted leak sources online which include the new shells like the champagne gold and the graphite design of the iPhone 5S, not to mention the iPhone 5C plastic shells that are set to come in a wide range of colors.
Knowing How Dickson Operates
The Aussie controversial source of leaks shared with Fortune that one of his trusted sources is an Apple employee in China. Others he has been friends with through the Web site Weibo.
His biggest hit-makers came with the first set of leaked photos of what was rumoured to be parts of the iPad 5, iPad Mini 2, iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.
Big Time Sonny
Dickson added that Cupertino-based computers have visited his site above 900 times during the previous month. The young Australian is confident though that he is not breaking any law.
He now has plans to build his own electronics business in Australia that will bring Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) products from China under his own brand name.
