It might just be that consumers have iPhone 5 on the brain, but blog readers are tilting their head to the left and seeing implied 5s throughout the multi-colored logo for the 2012 WWDC. Is this one of Apple’s subtle hints, or just wishful thinking?
As a postscript to my article yesterday on the official announcement of the 2012 Worldwide Developers Conference, I asked readers if they had any creative interpretations of this year’s WWDC logo, since Apple is well known to foreshadow their events with cryptic logos and promotional graphic that often hold clues to what new product is going to be announced. Apple’s choice of clues have sometimes proven to be too well-hidden, and only 20/20 hindsight reveals them after the new device has been announced.
In this case, however, a wide range of iPhone 5 News Blog readers immediately spotted a clue that jumped right out to them: a succession of implied 5s throughout the multicolored WWDC logo.
Can you see it? Cock your head to the left — readers in the thread from yesterday’s post are seeing a large, red 5 in the center of the logo, and a series of other implied 5s as well.
Of course, if you cock your head to the right, you see what looks like a series of apps or screens shooting upward, which would also imply that the WWDC will be soley about iOS 6. Still, veteran reader and commenter SpasticPat also located what he thinks looks like an implied iPhone 5 in the center of the graphic as well. A less-supported theory being bandied about is that the logo could also imply that Apple will announce the long-rumored iTV at the WWDC, or perhaps the even more mystical “Mini iPad.” But few have been able to find any hidden message in the WWDC logo to substantiate that theory. What about you? Do you see the 5s in the logo? Or do Apple users just have iPhone 5 on the brain?
