Can we use the iPhone Frame on a ThemeForest design/template just for design showcase purposes? Or maybe for a product page to tell people that we have an iPhone application?

You mean the image of an iPhone? Unfortunately no, due to copyright restrictions.

Best thing to do is shoot Jeffrey an email with the image of the iPhone frame and the associated copyright information and get approval to use it from him first.

I wouldn’t.. Apple are pretty strict about using their products; I’d just recommend that you use some average phone, or a really edited version of the iPhone :)

just alter enough to not look exactly like an iphone – you know like all the apple fanboys do for expected devices. All it has to be is similar but not the same.

That’s exactly what I was thinking :P I’ll drop the email to Jeffrey with the image though.

thanks

Unfortunately, no, you won’t be able to use that.

1) It can’t say iPhone.

2) The image of the iPhone is clearly recognizable so it will either need significant changes or a different image all together. Also, I would change the screen image on the device to something different.

yeah – you can’t use the iphone wording at all – and yes you will need to change the image more to not look exactly like an iphone ( I would remove the overlays on the screen also and replace with an image you own / create have license for.)

Not much is needed to make it a “similar” but not the same device.

I would say the image breaks their restructions. However, I disagree with the other statements. I’ve talked with the copyright department at Apple about this. If you read the copyright pages they have it’s pretty clear. You can’t use the image pretty much at all but using the words “iPhone” is not prohibited AS LONG AS you aren’t making it sound like it’s an Apple supported product.
