"iPhone 5" Photo Stream Image is Gone






Top: New Photo Stream, Bottom: Old Photo Stream
An icon that looked vaguely like a redesigned iPhone, thought to be the iPhone 5, appeared this summer in a Photo Stream image. The final version of Photo Stream reverts to a logo of the iPhone as we know it. Before and after pictures of the Photo Stream welcome screen are presented above. It was first noticed by MacRumors forum user djrod.

When the image first surfaced, we noted that it seemed to show an iPhone-like device with an enlarged screen and possibly an elongated home button at the bottom. At the time, this matched up nicely with many of the circulating rumors about the "iPhone 5".

It's unclear if this was simply the work of an sloppy designer, or if a redesigned iPhone was really in the works and the release of this icon design was a legitimate and accidental leak.

Interesting.

I guess it'll pop up sometime next year.

My 2 is that it is actually still in the works and the designer really thought that it'd be released this year

Maybe next year.

What if the next iPhone looks like what people thought were going to be the 5?

I think people are just seeing what they want to see.

Or the "iPhone 5" design could have been a controlled leak for some reason. Either to gauge public opinion of a proposed design, or possibly to discover the source of an internal leak.

Or maybe they just decided to make a new icon that included the iPad?

Now that I see the final image it looks more like they were trying to make a "universal" icon that could both represent the iPhone and iPad at the same time.

not to sound like a conspiracy theorist but wouldn't surprise me if the 5 was close to done if not done but in the weeks leading up the the announcement they found out Steve was near the end. Might be saving the last major device he had a large hand in for a time when they can honor him and his contributions.

It's not like the 4s isn't going to rake in the money and they can always use extra time to even go a step above.

Or apple engineers heard the rumors and were like "let's have some fun"

It's the 6.... When they announced the 4 they said they started work on it at the same time as the 3gs but of course they had a full year longer to make it better, That is what they are doing here with the 4s and 6...

Hmm. My personal opinion is that they were indeed going to release an iPhone 5, but manufacturing delays/difficulties made them push it to 2012 and shift to a 4S only this year. How early or how late this decision was made, we will of course never know. But, very interesting to say the least.

Anyway, I'm holding on to my 3GS until this legendary iPhone does show up.

Spoken like someone that has no clue that tech takes an easy 2-3 years to go from design to on the shelf. It is highly possible that there are many things that Steve had his hands all over that we haven't seen yet.

yeah cause 1 million pre-orders is all the sales they are going to get.

It's very possible that any thing like the rumored iPhone 5 was merely in the testing stages and Steve's condition or not it was never going to be released until next year or later. the 4s fits with the trend we have seen for the last couple of years and could have been the truth all along

It was actually a picture of one of the samsung phones.
