A video of what appears to be the fabled white iPhone has surfaced online, seemingly running an all-new version of Apple’s iOS platform.
See the clip for yourself below
Originally sourced by Vietnamese site Tinhte.yn, the clip showcases a version of the operating system with a new approach to multi-tasking, the hub of which is a new screen showing nine – that’s one more than Android – recently running apps as thumbnails.
For long-time iFans that marks a significant departure from the multi-tasking M.O on iPhones, whereby applications you’ve got open appear at the bottom of the homescreen.
Whether the video is our first look at iOS 5 is up for debate. While multi-tasking on iKit does need a re-think, it’s stretching credulity somewhat that Apple would go with an approach that takes it cues from jailbroken iPhones.
However, you’d be foolish to discount the clip entirely. Especially given that Vietnamese sites have a habit of turning up some bona-fide exclusives, perhaps most memorably when Taoviet sourced snaps of what was later confirmed to be an iPhone 4 prototype.
