Every few days I promise I will not write about the new iPhone, but again I will not keep my promise. How to keep it, if every now and then we have another, interesting leaks about this model...? This time - a leak straight from Apple!
The fifth iPhone?
How is this possible? It's simple - it was enough to closely follow the presentation of the new iOS. In its course, when discussing the functions of the system integration of automotive electronics, there was presented a slide showing the interior of the car with the iPhone mounted on the handle. It seems that ... it's a new one! I admit that while watching the presentation, this detail had escaped my notice. It was spotted, however, by Moridin
from the service MakoweABC.pl
and shared his discovery on the network. Indeed, the white phone in the handle has very different proportions than the previous model: it is clearly higher. Comparing this with earlier rather numerous rumours about the bigger display - we have the answer. Moridin
also shows us slides from other presentations, where we see the familiar iOS interface elements, but he points out that in the screen shots shown we can significantly notice more items than ever before...
But you must remember that everything you see, might just be a mistake of designers, and any of the discarded prototypes could have been used in the presentation. This second possibility would however confirm, that the pictures show a new model...
A few hours before the WWDC, one of the Far Eastern manufacturers of accessories posted on YouTube a video, apparently showing the case of the new iPhone. It has a similar shape, as the phone shown on the Apple photo... But again - these may be the remains of a prototype or a hoax.
On the other hand - the number of leaks suggesting enlargement of the iPhone to nearly 4 inches gives food for thought. And although I'm not glad because of this change I can now start betting for the Chinese charger that the new iPhone will be bigger!
