Supposed Pictures of the iPhone 5 Case Leak to the Interwebs

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

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.
9to5Mac’s 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.
