Decoration at the front of the venue where Apple is hotly tipped to officially unveil the iPhone 5 may have clues to a taller, more expansive screen for the handset, eagle-eyed iFanatics claim.
The tech giant finished jazzing up the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco where it’s due to host an event this Wednesday. A few fans have taken matters into their own hands to analyse what the colourful décor at the front of the building might allude to, and apparently they are the icons of several native iOS applications, including Game Center, iTunes, Music and App Store, that have been simply been vertically stretched out.
This has led some to the conclusion that the artwork is a nod at a larger, four-inch panel that has long been a mainstay of the Apple rumour mill, which wouldn’t surprise us the least bit given the company's history of hiding similar clues for past product launches.
The icons may also suggest the importance of iOS 6, which is expected to officially debut with the handset.
Taller screen and a new OS aside, the iPhone 5 is rumoured to feature a quad-core processor, 4G LTE support and a smaller, ‘mini’ dock connector that’ll eventually replace the current 30-pin port on all iDevices.
We’ll be covering the announcement live on Twitter, so be sure to follow us for developments as they happen.
