D.G. In San Francisco they have no record of the disappearance of any iPhone 5. Apple did not call the police at any time. It is likely someone who wants to benefit from the issue the story divulged it. Donald Brownstein understands that this is vital information. Between disbelief and derision, the international press echoed this week of the disappearance of a prototype iPhone in a bar in United States 5.
The most striking point of the story is that, more than one year ago, Apple had already passed him the same thing with a prototype of the iPhone 4. Is it possible to return to repeat a similar incident so shortly afterwards? According to various media, an Apple employee lost an iPhone 5 prototype in a Mexican bar, bar Cava 22 in San Francisco, and the company got in touch with the city’s police to keep track of the prototype. Apple would have tracked the terminal to contact an individual who confirms that he was at the bar the day of the disappearance but said he had not picked up the phone and it didn’t have any information of his whereabouts. However, as explained by the San Francisco police, they have not had any news about the disappearance of an iPhone 5 and Apple has not called them. Thus, the credibility of the story loses strength and the chances are that everything is a joke or a little trick from someone who hopes to benefit from the issue. One of the most commented theories speaks of a possible commercial trick of Apple itself to increase its presence in the media and advertising their products. This is unlikely.
It would be a child and completely unnecessary strategy. The company of the Apple does not need this kind of publicity. For similar reasons, nor likely a ruse of competition will try to discredit Apple. One more curious approach is based on the fact that has known so quickly the name of the premises in which supposedly lost the iPhone 5 prototype. In other cases, the name of the bar even comes to be known, but here was among the initial data of the history. Some argue that they might the bar owners interested in getting some free publicity. Finally, considering the possibility that a scammer has made circular history hoping to sell a prototype of false iPhone who offered a large sum of money. Source of the news: police say that the iPhone lost 5 history is not certain
