With iPhone 5 getting closer to Apple’s 12-month life cycle, the rumors about the upcoming smartphone are beginning to pick up. Many believe that the device, expected to be called an iPhone 5S, is already in works.
Here’s the story of how the images provided below have been captured and spread: “MacRumors has received several images that appear to show both the interior and rear shell of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 5S. The device appears to carry the same redesigned logic board that appeared earlier this week, suggesting that this is indeed a new iPhone.”
This version seems legit, as once the devices go into production, it becomes harder to control component leaks. There are many interesting things to note about the leaked photos of the alleged iPhone 5S, including the large chip that isn’t labeled as an A6 or A7. This makes us think that this particular device is just a prototype.
Moreover, the battery carries a more recent Apple part number of 616-0652 compared to the iPhone 5 battery, which has carried part numbers -0611 and -06113. As for the capacity, compared to the iPhone 5’s 5.45Whr, it is now as higher as 5.92Whr.
As for the back side of the device, there is a rear shell is that it looks almost exactly like the iPhone 5. However, there is one big difference- the larger, pill-shaped window is present for the LED flash next to the iSight camera, matching with the 5S reports we’ve seen previously.
