The iPhone 5 is being field tested by carriers right now, hidden in special cases designed to make them look inconspicuous, according to the Guardian.If you think back to last summer’s iPhone 4 leak, you’ll remember that apple hid the prototype in a special case that made the device look like an iPhone 3GS at first glance.

Assuming the Guardian’s sources are correct, it’s likely the iPhone 5 prototypes are housed in similar cases that make the phones look like any other boring old smartphone.
