Wonder what the world’s biggest Apple’s iPhone looks like?! The huge iDevice made an appearance in London’s busy St Pancras International Train Station yesterday to celebrate the launch of ‘Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light’ on the Apple App Store.

“It’s not unusual to see large things in London,” writes Steven Sande on Tuaw.com. “The London Eye (AKA Millennium Wheel) was the largest Ferris Wheel in the world for a time and still looms over the London skyline, and a large inflatable pig was buoyed over the Battersea Power Station in 1976 for an album cover shoot for Pink Floyd.”

With the winter white stuff causing chaos to european travelers, visitors to St. Pancras at least had the sight of the world’s largest iPhone to keep themselves occupied in the long queues.

However, to tell the truth, it’s not an iPhone. To create the huge iPhone display, 56 iPads were placed next to and on top of one another, while the black top and bottom of the iPhone were mocked up to give the display an iPhone look.

The mobile version of the latest Lara Croft game trailer for Apple devices was then uploaded to the iPads and shows around the clock on the display via looped video.
