  • Leaked Images Claim to Show Parts of the Unannounced iPhone Model


    Recently released photos from the Far East are claiming to show the dock connector flex cable and loudspeaker for an unknown iPhone model, with the parts possibly bound for either Apple’s next-generation handset or an inexpensive version rumored to see release this fall. The images first spotted by NoWhereElse.fr were published by Chinese parts retailer TVC-Mall, which is claiming that the components are bound for one of the two unannounced iPhone models.

    Although the parts seem to be quite similar to the Lightning connector/headphone jack flex cable and loudspeaker designs found in the current iPhone 5, the authenticity of the hardware cannot be verified. The flex cable is particularly interesting because it seems to carry Apple’s proprietary Lightning dock connector. As seen in the comparison photo, the allegedly new part varies from the existing iPhone 5 component in several ways.



    It seems to have a slightly modified connector and redesigned pressure contacts as well as repositioned grounding points. The sidewall mounting structures are also slightly altered from the iPhone 5 version, which seems to be minutely offset in the photo. The rest of the cable carries the same electronics as the current iteration, including an identically mounted Lightning port and headphone jack as well as an antenna connector.



    When it comes to the speaker, the supposedly new model has a slightly larger and squared off resonance chamber and relocated ground contacts. This part seems quite similar to a previously “leaked” part from a previous report.
    As many of you may already know, rumors of a next-gen iPhone are heating up as the end of Apple’s annual refresh cycle comes closer. The rumor mill is just getting started though and we’ll just have to wait to find out more concrete information.

      Nope. What would be more shocking is if nothing was changing. The 5s (or whatever you want to call it) is going to be a new phone so I'd be more surprised if nothing was changing. I think they are struggling to find content for this site and this is the best they can come up with.

      I love (and expected) that comment. I'm here because I have a iPhone that is jailbroken and this site does have info about it The fact that I see no point in this post does not take away from fact that from time to time there are things worth reading on this site. If everyone stopped going to webpages because of 1 thing on that site we didn't agree with or find value in, I don't think the internet would last long.

      Well, I've made my decision not to wait around for the iPhone 5s it's pointless because it's the same design as the i5 and I love the way the i5 look and feel running on IOS7 beta1 ..... And it's amazing how IOS7 runs and the best part is I don't even miss the jailbreak iPhone anymore!!!
