Apple had designed iPhone 5 before death of Steve Jobs

Apple’s next two iPhones had already been designed before Steve Jobs died in October 2011, according to comments apparently made by a liaison officer for the company last week.

At a meeting with the San Francisco district attorney, George Gascón, Apple’s liaison officer Michael Foulkes is reported by the San Francisco Examiner to have said the designs for the next two phones “preceded Tim Cook [being chief executive]”.

That would mean that both one phone due to be launched this year, as well as the iPhone 5, were already planned before Steve Jobs, Apple’s co-founder, died in October 2011, just a day after the iPhone 4S was unveiled, The Guardian reports.
