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