Alleged Images of iPhone 5S Lightning Connector Surface [PICS]

MobilesPie points to an iPhone component supplier Case Parts (a TVC-Mall subsidiary) which has posted images of what they claim to be the iPhone 5S dock connector with a charging port flex cable.

At first glance the alleged iPhone 5S component looks identical to what we can find in the currently available iPhone 5 (see iPhone 5 teardown from iFixit), but a closer look to the component reveals small design changes, which is in line with earlier reports of interior design changes instead of a totally redesigned handset.

A quick search on the supplier’s webpage reveals another alleged iPhone 5S component, a loudspeaker — associated with the iPhone 6 –, among other parts such as volume button with flex cable and vibrator motor parts, as well and the already leaked SIM tray.

We can’t really tell if these images are legitimate – but compared to what we have found on the website as iPhone 5 parts they show some minor differences. In case they are, these parts could reinforce earlier rumours of an iPhone 5S with fingerprint scanner.

Mobiles Pie has pointed to several component leaks before. They were the first one to spot the iPhone 5S loudspeaker earlier this month on the same website.

    “these parts could reinforce earlier rumours of an iPhone 5S with fingerprint scanner.”

    No, it is the exact opposite. To incorporate a SCANNER in such a thin body, it will require a MAJOR redesign of interior components. GET REAL!!

    REAL!

    Very real, but like you quoted, “small design changes”.

    Like the way you’re sticking up for your writers, though! =)

    I’m no hater. Not a fanboy either. I just love devices/gadgets that’s both functional and simple. That’s why I love the iPhone. Sometimes to a point that I would be disappointed to hear rumors that doesn’t make sense.
