iPhone 5 parts hint at black and white colour options

The fifth-gen iPhone could launch in a choice of black or white, leaked components suggest, as Apple looks to right the almighty wrong that was the long-awaited white iPhone 4.

Unearthed by the Apple acolytes at MacRumors, snaps of parts for the next-generation iKit reveal ribbons, camera lenses and an earphone audio jack in black and white variants.

The images are being interpreted as a sign that a white iPhone 5 is very much part of Apple’s plans, having laboured long and hard to fix manufacturing problems with the white take on the current-generation model.

Issues with light leakage caused by the white paint used for the iPhone 4 seriously impaired its credentials as a camera phone. The issue proved so tricksy to address that the white iPhone 4 arrived to market the best part of a year after the handset was first unveiled.

News of developments down Cupertino-way come amid a welter of speculation as to what exactly we can expect from Apple’s fifth tilt at a smartphone.

Rumoured specs include an eight-megapixel camera, on board Near Field Communications technology to enable users to pay for low ticket items by swiping their phone over a reader and fingerprint-proof surface.
