With the Stealth 2.0, Caviar has created a bullet-proof version of the iPhone 13 Pro. However, it has also removed its rear-facing cameras, supposedly with a view to improving privacy.

Caviar has released a follow-up to the iPhone 12 Pro Stealth, launched last December. This time, the company has based its new Stealth smartphone on the iPhone 13 Pro, although the Stealth 2.0 is also available as an iPhone 13 Pro Max.

Like its predecessor, the Stealth 2.0 lacks any rear-facing cameras. Apparently, this helps Caviar's custom smartphone offer better privacy protection than the regular iPhone 13 Pro series. It seems that Caviar has disabled the front-facing camera on the Stealth 2.0 as well, likely rendering Face ID useless.

As a result, the Stealth 2.0 should support no biometric authentication methods. Mind you, the smartphone is bullet-proof, even if Caviar demonstrates that a bullet will destroy the Stealth 2.0. It is unclear what protection the regular iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13 Pro Max would offer against a bullet.

According to Caviar, it only plans to create 99 units of the Stealth 2.0. However, it is unclear if that is 99 units of each SKU or 99 units total. Currently, Caviar charges US$6,370 for its version of the iPhone 13 Pro with 128 GB of storage. Prices rise to US$7,980 for a 1 TB version of the iPhone 13 Pro Max, though. Caviar ships worldwide, but you must customs fees and duties.
