“Early iPhone 5 parts seem to be making their way into the supply chain. Earlier this evening, we reported that some more iPhone 5 parts had shown up at one particular retailer, including the iPhone 5 battery,” Arnold Kim reports for MacRumors. “While we felt the parts were likely legit, we had no specific confirmation.”
“In the meanwhile, however, UK repair shop iPatchiPods has passed along a few photos of an iPhone 5 battery part they had received from their contacts,” Kim reports. “The photos show the same battery as previously posted. This battery, however, is labeled ‘DVT_B3,’ marking it as a late development prototype.”
Kim reports, “The part images come from someone who has supplied iPatchiPods with legitimate Apple parts ahead of previous launches.”
