During the last few hours, many of you have sent us the news. Hard as it may be to believe, Apple has lost a prototype of the iPhone 5 in a bar in San Francisco . Specifically, in the place called Cava 22 in the Mission District. When they found out, Cupertino immediately asked for the collaboration of the police, arguing that the lost device was “priceless”, although he did not want to give more details.
Using its GPS, Apple has located the prototype in a neighborhood in the city and even the police have already taken a statement from a neighbor with a record included, who said he knows absolutely nothing. So far, city officials have not collected any complaints. Right now I would not like to be the person who lost that phone.
We all remember what happened last year, right? Gizmodo got hold of a lost prototype of the iPhone 4 that was lost in a similar way, and after it was proved that it was really the real iPhone model the case was taken to court. The case ended a few weeks ago, with Gizmodo walking away free of charge. The culprits ended up being, according to the sentence, the ones who got the prototype in that bar.
It is still early to know how this new case will end, but the prototype is still lost and I am sure that while I write these lines Apple will be deploying all its resources to recover it. We will continue to keep an eye on how this news unfolds.
Thanks to all of you who warned us!
