Purported iPhone 5 part strongly suggests completely different design

“iPhone parts supplier sw-box has gained access to few more replacement parts for next generation iPhone device,” Cydia Blog reports.

“This time – Earphone Jack/ Ear Speaker/ WIFI Cable For iPhone 5,” Cydia Blog reports. “The internal arrangement of circuit looks completely redesigned.”

Cydia Blog reports, “The leakage of individual iPhone 5 parts every now and then is likely a sign that we’re getting closer and closer to launch. Regardless if this is a legit part or not, it seems like Apple has a few changes in store for the iPhone 5.”

  1. All this suggests is that Apple is again doing some internal housekeeping. It indicated nothing as to the major areas of interest, such as the back, the screen, etc.

  2. I’ll take two please and a switch from AT&T to Verizon. My new Verizon iPad does much better here than AT&T ever did up in the hills of the San Fernando Valley, even getting some LTE signal. So I anticipate a Verizon iPhone 5 will be imminently more satisfying. No Microcell needed.

    1. the only thing I don’t like with Verizon is the fact you can’t talk on the phone and check the web- or get driving gps info, at the same time. You can only do both if wifi is available. My wife has AT&T and I have Verizon so we bounce back and forth with the phones depending on what needs to be done.

      1. That is changing now. All LTE enables phone – you have the ability to talk and surf at the same time now on verizon network (ONLY LTE) Phones – but it needs dual cores when i spoke with one of the Tech Reps about how it works. That is how they are going to try and beat AT&T.

  3. I’ve had my iPhone 4 for going on two years, and I’m very much ready for an upgrade. There is NOTHING wrong with the iPhone 4 or the 4s; there just wasn’t enough difference between the two for me to want to upgrade. Yes, I want Siri and the better camera, but I didn’t want them badly enough to burn my subsidized purchase on it.

    I’m not even sure if I care that much about a form-factor change… I’m fine with that either way. I’m just looking forward to something to get excited about.

    Hoping it’s June or July and not October.

    1. Same for me I’m very happy about the iPhone 4/4s but I to have had it for 2 years. I’m hoping for a non beta actual release smarter Siri, and iOS 6 also I hope for 4g

  4. “Regardless if this is a legit part or not, it seems like Apple has a few changes in store for the iPhone 5.”

    What a gross nonsense. If this part is not a legit one, then there is absolutely no way to suggest that the next iPhone has “a few changes” in the sense that this tabloid site implies.

    Also, if this part is legit, then still it has nothing to do with “strongly suggesting completely different design” — with LTE supports, obviously internals might be vastly differently designed. Compare “differently designed internals” and “completely different design”.

    (Of course, the new iPhone might be totally redesigned inside-out, but, as of now, there is nothing to suggest that.)
