  • Leaked Component Pics Show iPhone 5S Goes for the Gold

    One week from today, Apple will kick off its annual WWDC and present iOS 7 for the world to see. Although new hardware isn't expected to take the stage during Apple CEO Tim Cook's keynote, new image leaks hitting the web Monday are generating more buzz about the iPhone 5S.

    Surfacing hours ago on Chinese site Weibo, new component images of Apple's forthcoming iPhone 5S purportedly show that the next-gen device will be available in a multitude of colors (as previously rumored) that will include gold.

    For now, color is about as much as the blogosphere has to buzz about in light of the sobering fact that the overwhelming evidence - including these and other leaked shots of the power button, SIM card tray, etc. - indicates that the iPhone 5S will not deliver a significant redesign over the iPhone 5.

    Although the internal components will naturally be upgraded for the 5S, there are very few elements pertinent to aesthetics to get charged up about, with the exception of the perpetually-mounting piles of clues hinting at a broad spectrum of color options.

    As of this writing, most analysts, supply chain sources, and market watchers believe Apple will unveil and launch its iPhone 5S in September.

      Since when has the 4S been brown?

      Pretty sure these are intended as aftermarket parts. Doesn't mean that Apple will not make these colors, but it doesn't mean they will either.

      Since the company that took the photo started making SIM card trays, Volume Buttons & Ringer Toggles in three colors for easy customization! This is nothing more than simple cosmetic upgrades for the 4, 4S, 5 and, soon to be, 5S.

      Highly doubt Apple is completely changing the design of the 5S so it's safe to say that this is just based off the ip5 parts.

      The iPhone in its current state has been out 8 months or so making it stale at the least.
