Apple’s Yerba Buena Center banner with stretched iOS icons hints at taller iPhone 5

“Apple has finished decorating the front facade of the Yerba Buena Center in preparation for their September 12th media event,” Arnold Kim reports for MacRumors.

“Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 5 at that event,” Kim reports. “At initial glance, the front decoration seems to show no obvious clues as to their announcements.”

“However, one eagle eyed MacRumors forum visitor believes the facade show stretched iOS icons,” Kim reports. “Zaym points out that you can see stretched versions of iOS icons including Game Center, iTunes, Music and App Store in the image and provides an example image.”

  1. Wrong, wrong, wrong…. but very close,and a good catch to spot the association. Stretched icons makes no sense- because they won’t be stretched on the screen.

    This image, IMHO, denotes the speed of the phone- LTE – and a “jump to lightspeed”. Hyperspeed. “Warp Factor 9, Mr. Sulu.”

  2. This could only mean the iPhone 5 will be made from Silly Putty-like “Liquid Metal”!
    Now you can download comic books to “copy and stretch”.

    It will also be a hair magnet leading to lawsuits claiming their cat chased it down and ate it.

    You heard it here first!
