  • 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.

      Im guessing this could be from a company that sells aftermarket hardware.... These colors are already available. Here is just one source. the iColors Design logo just tells me it is an aftermarket company like this.

      In my opinion this is total crap.. apple wouldn't change from their love of silver and black to go to just gold!

      When a friend of mine dropped her iPhone 4 and shattered it, she had it done in bright orange. Looks sharp!

      Just like when Samsung announced that they will release the S4 in Arctic Blue. Innovative, right?

      I've got to ask, what great changes was everyone expecting to see from a SIM card tray? The phone could be the size of an iPad and you'd never know from a SIM tray...

      No... 4" is too big, IMHO. I love the 3.5 I've messed around on my friends s3
      And absolutely hate it. I love the small portability of my 4S
