An Apple employee walks into a bar and loses an iPhone prototype.

If you think you have heard this one before, you are correct. There is no punch line here. It appears to be true.

CNET reports that Apple's iPhone 5 prototype may have been left in a San Francisco bar by an Apple employee and sold on Craigslist for $200.

CNET notes that the information came from a single source and has not yet been confirmed. If the details turn out to be fact, it is deja vu all over again. A similar incident occurred in 2010 when an iPhone 4 prototype was stolen.

Apple declined to comment.

Sources say Apple employees reportedly tracked the prototype electronically to a home in a nearby residential area. But police did not find anything and the occupant denied any knowledge regarding the missing iPhone or involvement. Coincidentally, he was present at the San Francisco tequila bar the same night the device went missing

The Apple iPhone 5 is expected to be released this fall, as early as October according to some reports. As details evolve, Apple enthusiasts wait and eagerly watch.
