Apple used the WWDC keynote to show us their vision of where the company plans to go with OS X and iOS. Additionally, those new MacBook Pros looked absolutely amazing, don’t you think? What was really fascinating to see during yesterday’s keynote, however, was the unveiling of the next iPhone.
What, you missed it? Apple’s sixth-generation iPhone was, perhaps, there in plain sight, according to iDownloadBlog.
It was during Scott Forstall’s Eyes Free presentation that we might have gotten our first glimpse from Apple of their next handset. On the keynote video, skip to 79.04 to see the new handset or simply look at this photo:
As you can see, the handset docked on the center console is clearly longer than Apple’s current iPhone 4S/4 model.
As iDownloadBlog rightly asks:
Is this for real? Is it just a bad Photoshop job? Is it a tease, or an oversight?
Personally, I don’t think Apple deliberately showed us the next iPhone. Rather, the photo is most likely that of a mockup. Still, with most of the recent iPhone rumors suggesting the next handset will indeed be longer than its predecessors, anything is possible. Two things we know for certain: Apple will never confirm the photo’s authenticity and we’ll just have to wait until this fall to know for sure.
Did Apple publish a real photo of the next iPhone, or was it just a mockup?
