An icon that looked vaguely like a redesigned iPhone, thought to be the iPhone 5, appeared this summer in a Photo Stream image. The final version of Photo Stream reverts to a logo of the iPhone as we know it. Before and after pictures of the Photo Stream welcome screen are presented above. It was first noticed by MacRumors forum user djrod.
When the image first surfaced, we noted that it seemed to show an iPhone-like device with an enlarged screen and possibly an elongated home button at the bottom. At the time, this matched up nicely with many of the circulating rumors about the "iPhone 5".
It's unclear if this was simply the work of an sloppy designer, or if a redesigned iPhone was really in the works and the release of this icon design was a legitimate and accidental leak.

Why would they need the icon to look like the iPhone 5 so badly when it isn't a noticeable icon and doesn't offer any detail?
It was just a generic image that's gotten out of hand.
yeah cause 1 million pre-orders is all the sales they are going to get.
It's very possible that any thing like the rumored iPhone 5 was merely in the testing stages and Steve's condition or not it was never going to be released until next year or later. the 4s fits with the trend we have seen for the last couple of years and could have been the truth all along
