iPhone 5 leaked parts 'fit perfectly', show headphone port
Another tempting glimpse of the iPhone 5, as assembled bits of casing 'fit perfectly' together.
Leaked parts that will supposedly feature in Apple's new iPhone have been assembled, with eager tinkerers reporting that the acquired bits and bobs fit together 'perfectly'.
As well as giving us a new peek at the iPhone 5's headphone socket, which has been moved to the bottom of the phone, the site reports that "all of the threading and screw holes lined up perfectly," lending yet more credence to the slew of leaked components that have emerged over the last few months.
Comparing the assembled iPhone 5's underside, you can see the difference in size between the current 30-pin charging port and thethat's expected to adorn Apple's next smart phone.
While I've learned not to place too much faith in leaked components or blurry snaps, the mountain of matchingon this much-anticipated gadget is certainly persuasive. Based on leaked parts, photos and video, I'd say that at this point a taller iPhone with a 4-inch display is about as certain as unconfirmed gadgets can get.
There are secrets still to be revealed, in particular what kind of processor will be powering Apple's next plaything, and whether the bumped-up screen size will make room for an extra row of homescreen icons.
