Parts purportedly belonging to the iPhone 5 have been successfully appended inside the handset’s alleged leaked frame, all but officially confirming that it really is the next iPhone.
Repair specialist iResQ has recently got its hands on a docking port and headphone jack assembly for Apple’s next flagship kit. It has since managed to get the parts to ‘fit perfectly’ into the leaked back panel that’s been long rumoured as intended for the iPhone 5.
iResQ wrote in a blog post: “One of our technicians was even able to screw the assembly into the pre-aligned screw holes inside of the frame. All of the threading and screw holes lined up perfectly with the screw holes in then docking port/headphone jack assembly.”
It’s worth noting that there are still some bit and pieces missing inside the frame, such as plastic gaskets and fittings. But for now, this at least gives us some idea of what the new iPhone will look like.
Yesterday we unveiled a fully assembled front panel for the iPhone 5 that revealed a larger, four-inch LCD screen and a centred front-facing camera. All evidence so far suggests the iPhone 5 will be the same width as the iPhone 4S, but taller.
Other features rumoured to be on board include a quad-core processor, an improved eight-megapixel camera, 4G support and NFC connectivity.
The iPhone 5 could be officially announced on September 12th, followed by a release on September 21st.
