"iPhone 4 or 5 save for the absence of the speaker slit"
That is because he doesn't have ears to hold the phone up to. Vader had his suit upgraded with BT sometime ago, so he is setup for hands-free use.
Darth Vader has posted his first selfie, and appears to use an iPhone to do it. The selfie appeared on Instagram, which now has an official Star Wars account that will presumably be used as one of the zillion marketing tactics now necessary to motivate the general public to leave their sofas and trek to cinemas. Vader's image …
The Empire managed to run, in reasonable order, an entire Galactic Empire. Of course they need tech "that just works"
Can you imagine an Empire run on WindowsRT?
And that said, history is written by the winners - we only percieve the Empire as the evil ones because the Rebels won at the end. this whole "Dark Lord of the Sith" stuff could be entirely propagander by Ackbar's PR department (much like Microsofts anti-Google marketing tactic at the moment)

Well I was going to point out that a series of documentaries was made about the whole affair, which included actual footage of many key events, such as the Death Star destroying Alderaan.
Then I remembered that some of that footage was 'corrected' in later editions of the documentaries, so maybe you're right.
trek as in star trek?
and what's this instragam thingy?
p.s. I didn't know darth wore motorcycling gloves?
and, like, can we have a "leak" on darth sexting? Cause it's like, what they do now, innit? Or shake his (hairy, no doubt) ass? There's no marketing like scandal marketing.
I mean just look at the Death star, looks lovely, lots of nice round corners. But you drop something in the wrong place, in the case of the Death star 2 Photon torpedo's into an impractically placed exhaust port (which kinda screams Apple), then the whole thing cracks up!

Secondly, Star Wars is famously set “a long time ago in a Galaxy far, far, away”. If Vader truly did use an iOS device in that distant locale and time, Apple's various patent lawsuits against Samsung and others just got a whole lot harder to prosecute successfully.
No far from it, by exposing it was a long time ago then they have established that no 'prior art' from Samsung can exist. Now they will have to reveal that Apple are really a descendent of an evil Galactic Empire but all except Fanbois won't bat an Eyelid.
How come no-one else has pointed out that it's a photo of himself taking a photo of himself...
Clearly he must have 2 phones, while pictured with what does look very Apple like (it's clearly a rectangle with rounded corners) You have to ask, what was used to take the photo we're looking at.....?
