New photos purport to show new micro Dock Connector and headphone jack for ‘iPad mini’

“Photos of parts for the next-generation iPhone and the rumored iPad mini continue to leak, with repair firm iResQ posting new photos of what are said to be the dock connector/headphone jack flex cable parts for both devices,” Eric Slivka reports for MacRumors.

“Each of the parts is available in both black and white, indicating that Apple will be coordinating the dock with the bodies of the devices,” Slivka reports.

“These iPad mini parts are the first interior components of the device to appear, and while they have not been confirmed to be for the device in question they are consistent with Apple parts and are too large to fit inside an iPhone,” Slivka reports. “The site [iResQ] tells us that ‘there is just one set of eight contacts inside of the port’ with ‘none on the top side.'”

    Wouldn’t that be amasing?
