A YouTuber in Dubai unboxed the iPhone 13 Pro Max, showing off the updated packaging and new gold color.

Apple's embargoes for the iPhone 13 haven't lifted, but that doesn't prevent some from sharing videos early. A YouTuber in Dubai, known as SalimBaba Technical, posted a three-minute video.

The video isn't in English, but viewers can observe the updated packaging and the gold iPhone 13 Pro Max in action. Unfortunately, Apple's rendered product images and video don't always capture how colors appear in real life, so this is the first real look at the new gold color.

The packaging is similar to the iPhone 12 Pro Max, but it doesn't have the outer plastic wrap. Instead, there are two pull tabs on the back of the box to remove the tape, keeping it closed.

Inside, everything else is identical to the iPhone 12 packaging. There is a Lightning to USB-C charging cable, stickers, and a sim removal tool inside. The white paper cover on the display shows labels for the mute switch, volume buttons, and power button.

Customers can pre-order the iPhone 13 now, but new orders won't arrive on release day since the initial stock has run out. However, early pre-orders will be delivered on September 24, and some lucky customers will be able to purchase iPhones in store on release day.
