“The fourteen photos published by sjbbs.zol.com show trays of iPhone 5-like faceplates making their way through an assembly line, in addition to several shots of the internal componentry of the unknown models,” Lane reports. “Thus far, one discernible difference between the model shown in the photos and the existing iPhone 5 is the presence of a slightly different motor for facilitating the handset’s vibration mode.”
Lane reports, “If the photos are indeed genuine, they could imply that Apple has chosen to address with the iPhone 5S a much-criticized move on its part that saw it employ a rotational motor in the iPhone 5, which has proven noisier than the “quieter and less annoying” linear oscillating vibrator found in the iPhone 4S.”
