  • 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.

      A lot of iPhone users say that lol. I hated the way the iPhone 4 looked when the pictures leaked, I hoped with all my might that wasn't the final product, and when it was I thought no way in heck I'd like to own that weird looking iPhone. Ended up getting it and for some reason now I think it's one of the sleekest looking phones in the smartphone market. Maybe that will be the case for this upcoming iPhone too

      I wasn't really sold on the two-tone look of it either but seeing it in videos it is kinda growing on me. Looks kinda sexy.

      I agree. Even though I'm not a fan of matte surfaces on my phones, I hope I'll like it as much as I like the glass on my iP4. I kind of feel like it's not as elegant though with that two-tone back...maybe I have to watch the video more.

      I think it'll be very nice, and feel very solid as the midframe and rear cover are now one piece. The black anodizing looks pretty cool and reflects light in an interesting way - sometimes it looks more black, sometimes it looks kind of silver. I hated the 3G/3GS because they felt cheap, the original iPhone felt solid and expensive, and so does the iPhone 4/4S. This phone will also feel very solid and cool to the touch, not cheap and plasticky.

      The only thing that really turns me off is the screen is only a little bit bigger and would have fit perfectly with the 4/4S height if they'd shrank the top and bottom part of the bezel down a little. Instead, the bezels are the same size and they've made the phone extra long. I think it might look kind of weird being extra long and skinny. A lot of phones have bigger screens than this and a smaller bezel, I think a smaller bezel looks better. I also carry my iPhone in my pocket and it's already annoying enough when it goes sideways, it will be extra annoying if it were longer.

      Unless it has some really compelling new features that are impossible to get on the 4S, I'd probably prefer to just get the 4S instead of the 5 on dimensions alone since I've always liked iPhones for their compactness.

      I agree with the weird back color, I'd hate that.

      the whole point of the dock is to play music and charge through the dock. not hook up headphones while its on a dock.
      most docks have an AUX out
