Jimmy Kimmel Confirms People Love the New iPhone 5, Even Though They're Being Pranked With an iPhone 4S

The iPhone 5 has been criticised for being a boring and marginal update to the iPhone 4S—at least in terms of design, since the new handset looks a lot like its predecessor. The two phones are so similar, that when Jimmy Kimmel showed the iPhone 4S to random people on the street, passing it off as the iPhone 5, no one realised the ruse.

In fact, when told it was the iPhone 5, most of them praised the new handset for being lighter, faster, and having a much-improved screen. So why did Apple spend all that time supposedly redesigning the iPhone from the ground up? Next year, Apple should just slap the next number on the back of the previous model—it'll still sell millions of them. [YouTube via Ubergizmo]
