Apple is furious and has sent a letter to the current holder of the lost-and-found next-generation iPhone requesting that it be returned.  Whoever went to the California bar and accidentally left this phone there is likely making plans to flee south of the border.

On a more technical note, the next-generation iPhone is sleeker, has a glass back (which will likely improve reception and connectivity issues), and has a higher resolution (albeit slightly smaller) screen than the most recent iPhone version.  Other enhancements and additions include a general "squaring-off" of the design of the new iPhone.  According to Gizmodo, the design "feels great." 

Gizmodo acquired the device from a private individual, the original finder of the new iPhone, who sold it to Gizmodo for a reported $5,000. 

Although it appears likely that Gizmodo will return the device to Apple, the entire issue is an embarrassment to a company that has long guarded its privacy and that prides itself on its secrecy.  Apple has always used mystery and speculation as one of its marketing strategies, but now that Gizmodo has analyzed this device and reported on all of its new features (http://gizmodo.com/5520164/this-is-apples-next-iphone?skyline=true&s=i), it appears as if Apple will lose that element of surprise.

Whether or not this was intentional is unclear but it is likely that this was an accident.
