There have been more leaked next-gen iPhone parts over the last few weeks than you can shake a stick at. The folks at iReqQ (via MacRumors) decided to put a couple of these leaked parts to the test, and found that the leaked dock connector and headphone jack that surfaced last week fits perfectly into a leaked rear shell for the iPhone 5 (shown below alongside an iPhone 4S)!
It’s been noted before that many of the leaked iPhone 5 parts (from separate sources) fit together quite well, which tends to suggest that the parts are authentic, and make an even stronger case that the taller two-tone iPhone that has been making the rounds is likely the same that will be announced by Apple on the 12th!
Even the screw holes on these parts leak up. It’s difficult to imagine how that can be a coincidence. Even so, it’s important to note that nothing is for certain until Apple actually shows it off themselves. Still, it seems like we have a pretty good idea of what to expect at this point…
Apple’s next iPhone is rumored to feature a taller 4-inch screen, thinner design, and a two-tone metal rear casing, as well as a smaller dock connector, relocated FaceTime camera, new smaller nano-SIM, and LTE support, and is expected to be announced on September 12.
