You may not remember this, but back in the day companies used to make special versions of their phones without cameras. Those were for business and government employees working in sensitive areas where cameras are banned. With today’s always-connected devices the bigger worry is that the phone can be compromised and its camera used to spy on you.
Caviar has a lavish solution to the problem – the iPhone 12 Pro Stealth. The company removed the triple cam from the back and disabled the selfie camera on the front (Face ID still works, but that uses the TrueDepth infrared camera).
The “Stealth” name was chosen as the design drew inspiration from radar-evading jets. There are two versions of the customized phone, both use hardened titanium to create a new rear panel.
The Caviar iPhone 12 Stealth features vertical guilloche with durable black laser coating. The Stealth Gold version switches to gold PVD coating. Only 99 units will be produced of either version, so these are fairly exclusive too.
That is not to say expensive – the Stealth starts at $4,990 and the Stealth Gold at $5,520. That’s pretty affordable by Caviar standards, at least compared to the $23,380 iPhone 12 Pro encrusted with 18-karat gold. You can check out both phones here.
Note: there’s no word on whether MagSafe still works, but chances are that wireless charging is disabled by this modification.
