  • Is this the next iPhone running the new iOS?


    Tinhte, the people who have previously shown off many Apple prototypes, including a test iPhone 4, a MacBook prior to refresh, and a pic of an iPod touch with a camera, well before any of these were announced officially by Apple, are at it again, this time sporting a white iPhone that they say is running a "test version" of iOS.

    If this is in fact the iPhone 5, it sure it looks a lot like the iPhone 4, which if you've been keeping up with the latest rumors, should not be a surprise. It's expected that a majority of the upgrades are happening on the inside of this flashy white phone. The same source has released a second video that shows off the phone's hardware, and lo and behold this thing's sporting a 64 GB hard drive.

    The short videos show off the new interface for a bit, particularly highlighting a brand new multitasking interface. The current multitasking of iOS 4 has allegedly been replaced by an expose-like (and similar to the multifl0w cydia tweak) interface that reveals all of your open applications. A tap brings you back to that app, and a long hold brings up the typical wiggling icons and allows you to close the app in the background. Also in the multitasking expose is the familiar spotlight search, which seems to be gone from its usual spot to the left of the home screen.

    Finally, the prototype iOS (which still has an iOS 4 build number) also includes long-awaited Facebook integration, which is now located in the settings menu. Although, we can't be fully sure this is the same iOS update we'll see in June, there's a good chance this is, we most likely won't know for sure until WWDC in a little over a month.

      The "new" folder look and feel makes me think this is not Apple and is a fake or is a pre iOS 4 beta version and Apple was contemplating an expose look and feel to multitasking. Coupled with the old Calculator icon, and some other items referenced below (ie, RonHC's comment about 4.0 build) - seems much more likely this is pre iOS 4.

      I don't believe there's enough to make a decision on whether or not this is an iPhone 4 or 5. But I will ask what's that "mic" at the top front above the camera/speaker?
      Its the proximity/ambient light sensor. You cant see it on the black iphone 4 becuase... well its black lol. If you buy any of the white iphone 4 conversion kits, you will be able to see it.

      So instead of losing them in a bar, Apple is just giving out prototype phones now?

      It could be one of the many different forms of the prototype but no saying its the real iPhone5. Also, I am really interested in seeing what exactly is going to change here.

      Original iPhone = 2G network
      iPhone3G = New with changed design and network
      iPhone3GS = iPhone3G with faster processor and 3.5G network support
      iPhone4 = New body, processor, screen, etc.
      iPhone5? = thoughts are its going to be a faster iPhone 4 with more storage and possible LTE support for Verizon.

      you mean LTE for Verizon and At&T???

      I really don't mind if the iphone 5 will have the same design as 4 but LTE is a must BETTER CAMERA IS A MUST!!! A5 is obvious.

      I'd prefer to see the icons instead of a screenshot... some of those screenshots were just black. How the heck are we supposed to know what app it is if its just black? Plus, you can better use the screen realestate if using the icons rather than screenshots.

      The 64GB looks good! And White! Maybe we'll see a full spectrum of colors in 10 years...

      Pre iOS 4, calculator icons gives it away. It's a beta of iOS 4.

      ^ Exactly. This is a pre iOS4 release version. Which is why things are missing or not updated with the look and feel that we have now. Also last year, the black iPhone 4 test model had 64GB if I remember correctly. This was just a test version of last years iOS4 that was scrapped. AI is reporting this too. The OP is taking liberties with the story and jumping to conclusions that it is iOS5.

      I say fake. If it was an updated version of iOS then he wouldn't have a problem showing what version it's running under settings. Looked like he was trying not to show it.

      This video made me like the white version a little more. I'm not one of the people who kept complaining about it not being available yet..... But it's growing on me.

      However, this is /still/ just the iPhone 4.

      Which is more than can be said for (or is it only mine?) iPhone 4s... They don't have a storage capacity sign on the back at all!

      Safari has the "+" not the "arrow out of the box" icon.

      Look at 1:34 in the video, the versionnumber says Version 4.0,
      to me this looks like a hoax.

      Sorry that I don't read every comment and don't carefully analyze the video, some of us have stuff to do and just glance over the story...

      I like the new Folders and the addition of spotlight into the multitasking.
