    I was just browsing the Apple website the other day and I found something rather intriguing on the ‘Try A Mac’ page. There’s an image of an Apple Genius and two cheerful customers in an Apple store, but just behind them there’s a set of advertisements, including an iOS device which looks like no other I have ever seen, in fact it looks strangely similar to the rumoured design for the next iPhone 5! It clearly has a much larger, edge-to-edge screen, a thinner bezel, and an iPod Touch like body! Here’s a link to the page – http://www.apple.com/why-mac/try-a-mac/ (Something else to note, the image file is called next_hero)

    That is a very strange looking device back there lol. Looks like it sports a lot of the rumored stuff like a larger screen, and it also seems to have the different volume rocker as well. Interesting image.

    That's intriguing... Could it be a "mistake"? Doubt it.

    This is clearly an older image. It does not sport any of the new apple store 2.0 stuff put through earlier this year and the advertised apps on the other wall are not new lol.

    That is pretty cool. You never know I guess. It would be incredible if they could make the next iPhone that thin!

    Well see me and my friend thought the same, but we've been thinking about it properly, and it just doesn't seem to add up, the advertisements behind them look like no other that's ever been displayed in an Apple store, and why is there a MacBook Pro right next to an iPhone?

    That's definitely not an iPhone 4 as it is curved. I think it's a 3Gs.

    It clearly isn't an iPhone 4.

    As the image name suggests it was taken in 2009, I'd hazard a guess that it's just a rendering of a 3G/3GS.

    It's a 3G(s) just like the phone in the dock next to the laptop, nice try though

    A 3GS doesn't have that small a bezel? Or that thin a body? Or that large a screen?

    Why wouldn't there be? More importantly, why wouldn't that iPhone be an iPhone 4?

    Because each product is displayed on their own separate tables and the iPhone 4 didnt exist back in 2009

    Actually you might have a point. Although I think it's more likely to be the iPhone 754 for the year 3480.

    It's a 3G/GS. The bezel blends into the background as it's chrome and the background is white.

    If I was in marketing trying to be sneaky in putting hints of an iPhone 5 image, I would backdate the image file name to throw people off... or take an old image with old products in the foreground, and photo shop a blury image of a new product in the background.... lol... but who knows.:p

    are you serious? the body on the 3GS is a hell of a lot bigger and chunkier, and the screen is a lot larger

    It's an out-of-focus wall display from 2009.

    But you believe what you want to believe lol. If it makes your day go a little quicker thinking it's the new iPhone 62, then who am I to disappoint you.

    It's not though.

    That's a washed out picture of the 3Gs. Look just to the left of the blue shirted guy's elbow. You'll see a blue 4/5 G iPod Nano. Apple doesn't sell those anymore and hasn't since September of 2010.
