iPhone 4S was launched instead of an iPhone 5 back in October. iPhone 5 – was real and was scrapped off only months before iPhone 4S was announced. This source comes from an industry that has been making accurate predictions on Apple Products in the past. One source said that Apple engineers had a plan of announcing the release of iPhone 5 as Apple’s next big announcement prior to 3 months of the release of iPhone 4S.
The leaked prototype had a bigger screen then the current iPhone. Like the Samsung phone, it was 4” diagonal. The new phones were expected to have aluminum backs just like the iPad 2. Just like the ‘liquid metal’ technology used for the iPod shuffles, sources say Apple wanted to use the same technology to make multi colored iPhones. The source played with a prototype which had a messed up screen and color which made the source believe that the new iPhone would have a better screen and a nicer color. The press button was not a physical one and was only used to reboot the device.
The battery life of the prototype sucked and its actual power was disguised by removing its limiter. Engeeniers reported that the new iPhone was expected to have a 10 MP camera. The source also said the iPhone had Siri but it was called ‘Assistant’
Rumor has it that the new iPhone didn’t happen because Steve Jobs was unhappy with the bigger screen because it ‘fragmented’ iPhones. Even though we didn’t get a totally new iPhone, we got the iPhone 4S.
