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.
