Could we be looking at the first officially leaked component photos of the forthcoming iPhone 5? The above image, as one example, was first posted on the iPhone Italia blog, which - it deserves to be noted - boasted sources that accurately predicted the timeframe for the recent white iPhone 4 release.
If you're confused about what this photo actually reveals, you're not alone. The minuscule part with disheveled wires is said to be the home button/speaker assembly for the next generation iPhone. If legitimate, we can extract at least a few key morsels of information - the most important of which to jailbreakers may be that there is apparently no truth to the speculation that Apple is killing the physical home button.
The home key will still be physical and not capacitive and there will continue to be mono sound..
The real selling-power of the iPhone 5 could ultimately be the way in which it allows users to enjoy the next major iOS upgrade, iOS 5, which - if truth be told - seems to be captivating the imaginations of most Apple fans considerably more than the iPhone 5 is for the time being.
