Supposed Photos of the Next iPhone's Headphone Jack and Earpiece Components Emerge
More photos of alleged parts for the upcoming iPhone 5, or new iPhone or whatever Apple decides to call it have started to surface.
The two photos reveal that the new iPhone will in fact have a headphone jack, Wi-Fi components and an ear-piece from which users can hear other people talk. Sarcasm aside, the leaked photos do show the components show significant design differences from the internals of the current iPhone 4 and 4S.
The headphone jack, earpiece, and Wi-Fi components appear to be all attached together. The iPhone 4 and 4S have the headphone jack attached to the volume buttons and mute switch in the upper left corner of the phone.
The leaked component photo list now includes:
- Home Button
- SIM Tray
- Headphone Jack
- Wi-Fi Components
Hopefully the redesigned internals will result in redesigned externals. The iPhone 4/4S is a beautiful device, but its time for something new. Although, the revamped internals could be a result of the new A6 processor and 4G LTE communication chipsets supposedly making their way into the new iPhone.

I don't know enough about the size of these components, but can anything be inferred about the potential width of the next iPhone? I guess if they just choose to increase the screen it would still be the same, but was curious.

It looks big, but a lot of this will be folded and attached to other pieces of the devices CPU so the size of this is irrelevant.

I'd love an increased screen size...so long as it stays 3:2 ratio. As a developer, it would be a pain to format for original iPhone ratio, new iPhone ratio, and iPad ratio. Suppose they could make phone a 4:3 ratio and allow for some downscaling to use same format of iPad images and layout on new iPhone.

No redesign. A5X chip. 3.7" screen (maybe). Redesigned internals are most likely to accommodate a larger/thicker battery to accommodate the increased power usage from the LTE chip.

Im hoping the phone does not increase in size..what are we going back to the "Zach Morris" brick phone?? haha! Keep the same size but go edge to edge with the screen..well that's my opinion. I don't like the size of the droids..too big. If you need a big screen, get an iPad. BTW the article says 2 pictures, where is the other picture? I don't have anything to reference..?
