Part Leaks

Purported iPhone 5S parts leaks show a steel gray/graphite color... or do they?

The photo above shows two button sets that most likely belong to the iPhone 5s. While the light gold color makes sense, the other middle set I wasn't so sure about. New part leaks this morning appear to show a lighter graphite - or steel gray to keep the metal theme going - colored housing for the iPhone 5s that just happens to match the buttons above. So, what does it mean?

New iPhone 5S part leaks show potential fingerprint sensor component

This morning we were passed along some interesting photos containing more components that could belong to the iPhone 5s. Most notably, a revised Home button cable that ditches the traditional contacts and adds a different kind of attachment as well as a dock that could be slightly revised from the current iPhone 5 dock. The interesting part is the amount of pins on the connector for the Home button assembly. There seem to be ten pins total shown in the photo and from what we know about past models, there's no need for an iPhone Home button to have that many pins unless it's performing some other type of function current iterations aren't capable of.

Analyzing - and sorting - purported iPhone 5S and less expensive iPhone parts

So far we've seen several purported part leaks for both the iPhone 5s - or whatever Apple calls the 2013 generation iPhone - and the heavily rumored less expensive iPhone model. Riki Baker over at mendmyi managed to get his hands on one of the supposed "budget" iPhone housings and found that certain components previously assumed to be for the iPhone 5s might actually belong to a "budget" iPhone instead. Here's why:

iPhone 5S component leaks show updated vibrator assembly and more

Some parts have been posted online that purport to belong to the iPhone 5s, or whatever Apple calls their next generation phone. While the iPhone 5 might continue the tradition of keeping the previous year's form factor, that doesn't mean the internals can't change. If these parts are genuine, they show updates to the vibrator assembly, earpiece and speaker brackets, and more. Here's the image from BGR:

Purported photos suface of less expensive iPhone plastic backing

The less expensive iPhone has been rumored for a long time -- a way for Apple to cater to emerging markets and entry-level, off-contract customers -- but so far it's remained little more than a myth. Today, case manufacturer Tactus claims to have an image of the rear casing for just that device.
