  • Supposed Pictures of the iPhone 5 Case Leak to the Interwebs

    The first image leaked by iFixyouri and reported by 9to5Mac


    The first purported images of the actual iPhone 5 have leaked, confirming many of the rumors surrounding the deviceís design if the photos from iFixyouri are in fact legitimate.


    Another higher res image leaked to 9to5Mac after news of the iFixyouri images broke

    The photos show case both a matte charcoal black iPhone 5 and a white model. The phone's feature the rumored brushed aluminum back and larger elongated screen. The other notable design change is the smaller dock connector, and placement of the headphone jack, which appears to be on the bottom of the phone much like the current iPod touch.

    The new location of the headphone jack does jive with an earlier part leak that claimed to be the headphone jack and earpiece. As MacRumors notes many observers commented that what was supposed to be the earpiece actually looked more like a smaller dock connector. The new location of the headphone jack would support this layout.

    Also, the bottom appears to feature larger speaker grills, which the source of the leak claims is an attempt by Apple to improve speaker performance with space freed up by the smaller dock connector.

    9to5Macís black leaked version of the iPhone 5 has the typical iPhone font printed on the back while the photos of the white version uBreakiFix received feature a slimmer font, and glossy rather than matte finish.



    It appears everyone is receiving images of the leaked iPhone from various sources. Expect more leaks in the coming weeks leading up to WWDC, even though Apple is unlikely to announce the new iPhone at the conference.

      Do you work on the inside of Apple? Probably not. I don't know why people feel the need to make claims based upon theory and speculation without any evidence or facts; maybe it will be called the "The New iPhone" but it's just as likely to be called the iPhone 5, and as for six, I highly doubt that they would just "skip" a number just to fit the generational chronology - if they were to do that then they would have named for 4S the iPhone 5.

      Doesn't look two toned to me. Looks like it's wrapped in plastic.

      I don't work for apple, but correct me if I am wrong; was there ever an iPhone 2? No, there was not so to say Apple would not skip a number to stay in chronological order, you are wrong. THEY AlREADY DID!!
      Remember:

      iPhone to iPhone 3G...Where is the iPhone 2?

      You must be the only privileged person in the world to receive that one of a kind phone.

      I really don't like the mini dock connector, it's an iDevice use the universal cord we all know and love, as for the look yeah it's ugly but I'm sure we'd get used to it and love it, and I personally like the headphone jacks on the bottom because of my iPod touch:P

      The original iPhone is generally known as the iPhone 2G, maybe because it came out on a 2G network I'm not sure.

      It's going to be called iPhone 5.

      People are stupid, yes it's the 6th iPhone but there are games like GTA 4 and 5 which aren't the 4th or 5th in series.

      Yep, every phone in the EU must have a micro USB connector

      Changing the dock connector allows you to replace all your current docks and speakers in the Apple store while picking up your new iPhone

      iPhone 3G -> iPhone 3GS -> iPhone 4?
      It's already been done. As unpredictable as Apple are, I'm sure they will blow us away with an "extravagant" name
      I'm not too sure I'll be fond of the colour of the white model shown on the picture. Though, we'll just have to wait to see what Apple unveils

      It doesn't look like anything Apple would release. First why have to different shades on the back that is 1 solid piece. We all know it will not have a removable battery. Changing the dock connector would be a bad idea. To many accessories already work with all iDevices.
      Personally I would rather see something designed more like the iPad & iPod. I like the style of the iPhone 4/4S, but after a while it becomes uncomfortable to hold.

      I agree with this, although the different shades may be for a technical reason(who knows)
      The dock connector change will be a big issue if Apple does roll out a change. It wont do much aside from burning our wallets even more
      In my opinion I prefer the iPhone 4/4S style over the iPod Touch style, not sure why but I just tend to like the smooth 'brick' style belonging to the iPhone

      Yes the original iPhone was 2G only, they called it the iPhone 3G for added the 3G network and the 3GS.
      Where S is for "speed" when they upgraded the processor

      ^^^ What this guy said, they're not gonna call the sixth gen iPhone the iPhone 5. iPhone 5 was what we presumed the 4S to be but everyone still uses that name that'd make no sence. And if you bring up the fact that they wouldn't go from 4 to 6 your an idiot.

      Otherwise the color difference on the back looks odd unless it housed the antennae which would not transmit through aluminum, considering they ditch the side system. A micro 30 pin connector is overdue as the current bulky one while being great for many purposes, is almost a decade old technology which could be far surpassed. Screen size cool. Bigger and better quality speaker? That's my personal favorite upgrade after the screen and design. I'll be patiently waiting for this and tell me I'm full of **** but remember my name when a prototype leaks onto YouTube

      Hideous. Apple prides itself on proportion and design and they would not just stretch the iPhone to fit a larger screen, its lazy. Also, name one recent apple product that is two toned when only one color is necessary? and if apple wanted to change to micro usb, they would have introduced the change with the new iPad, and finally, this isn't a redesign! its just thinner and stretched out. Any idiot could fake that, and I'm sure apple wants to make a phone that is innovative not ugly. THIS IS SO FAKE!
