Apple Loses iPhone In A Bar Again: Latest iPhone 5 Rumors
In another sign that Apple engineers can’t hold their liquor, the tech company lost a “priceless” device (assumed to be an unreleased iPhone 5) in a San Francisco bar last week, reports CNET. The episode is a bizarre repeat of an episode in Spring 201o, when a model of the unreleased iPhone 4G was lost at a California bar and eventual sold to a tech blog.
Apple reportedly used GPS technology to track the phone to a San Francisco apartment, and contacted the SF Police to help investigate. The man living at the home denied any knowledge of the phone, though he did admit to being at the same bar.
The SFPD initially denied helping Apple investigate, and the story seemed like a hoax. But the police department now confirms that plainclothes officers helped the company in the search. As sketchy as the story sounds, few are convinced that Apple would try such a publicity stunt; they really don’t need any help building anticipation for the new phone.
“Lost iPhone: The Sequel” broke just as a whole new round of iPhone gossip was coming out too. Here’s the latest:
iPhone 5 Will Be Thinner, Longer, and Wider
This is gaining a lot of traction, as pictures of new iPhone cases are surfacing. The cases suggest a much sleeker design, that gets thinner at the edges.
Sprint And T-Mobile Will Also Carry The Phone
T-Mobile is the original carrier (and eternal provider of dropped calls), but Sprint would be a new entry to iPhone.
Cheaper iPhone 4 Coming Soon
The new model will reportedly have only 8 GB of memory, and is due out in weeks.
