“A tipster sent us some pictures of what he now thinks is the iPhone 5,” Seth Weintraub reports for 9to5Mac.
“He caught what he said was likely an Apple employee hunched over the device on the way home from work in San Francisco earlier this week,” Weintraub reports. “He told us he was able to get a very good look at the device but the pictures he snapped ‘didn’t do it justice.'”
“We contacted the tipster by phone and checked his background. We believe he saw a totally new Apple device, probably a prototype iPhone 5. He contacted us because when he got home, he doubted what he saw was legitimate until he looked at the green cases we posted,” Weintraub reports. “Then it all came together for him. Our tipster has had an iPhone 3GS and currently has an iPhone 4. He knows his iPhones and iPods and this was like nothing he’s ever seen.”
