Apple allegedly scrapped plans for the iPhone 5 with a larger screen months before the 4S launch
Apple has reportedly indeed been working on a prototype iPhone 5 with everything we've heard about it - larger screen, thin chassis with aluminum or Liquid Metal backing, 10MP camera, touch-sensitive home button area, the works.

It was allegedly scrapped about three months before the launch, since Steve Jobs concluded it's a device that will fragment the iPhone line too much. It was also eventually loaded with Siri, which was called Assistant, according to a murky source, who is reported to have played with a prototype for two weeks.

It's an interesting theory, but the reporter acknowledges that he hasn't been able to verify the claims with a second source, so for now it might be just a theory put quickly together by someone, not to mention the publication has a penchant for sensationalist stories.
