Sonny Dickson has posted a new gallery (http://sonnydickson.com/2013/08/23/up-close-iphone-5c-and-iphone-5s-side-by-side-with-complete-part-set-screens-included/) of nearly 70 photos showing parts allegedly from Apple's upcoming iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. While many of the parts and even some of the individual photos have been seen previously, the gallery provides a good look at the various parts apparently making their way out of Apple's supply chain.

The photos include rear shells of both new iPhone models at various angles, as well as parts such as screens, flex cables and connectors, and SIM trays. The shots of both phones appear to be consistent with various leaks and reports throughout the past few months, and are claimed to be "direct from sources within Apple's supply chain".

http://images.macrumors.com/article-new/2013/08/sonnydicksoniphone2.jpgYou're looking at our most extensive iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C part leak yet, with a variety of ribbon cables and components, including the entire intact casings, vibration motor, audio jack, SIM trays, the front and rear cameras, the mounts to attach all of the components to the casing, and more. Nearly everything except the logic board - even the screens!http://images.macrumors.com/article-new/2013/08/sonnydicksoniphone1.jpg
The shots notably show the back housing of the alleged "gold" iPhone 5S, which appears to be similar to parts that surfaced (http://www.macrumors.com/2013/08/22/high-quality-photos-of-champagne-iphone-5s-rear-shell-surface/) yesterday showing a "champagne" color for the back plate along with a white top and bottom. The iPhone 5S pictured appears to have a dual LED flash, something that has been rumored (http://www.macrumors.com/2013/08/12/photos-of-top-strip-of-iphone-5s-rear-shell-again-point-to-dual-led-flash/) and seen in a leaked prototype (http://www.macrumors.com/2013/06/24/apples-prototype-iphone-5s-based-on-new-a7-chip/). The shots also show the rear shell of a blue iPhone 5C complete with separated parts, all of which is consistent with prior reports (http://www.macrumors.com/2013/07/02/high-resolution-renderings-of-apples-lower-cost-plastic-iphone/) and leaks (http://www.macrumors.com/2013/06/29/possible-photos-of-plastic-rear-shell-from-apples-lower-cost-iphone/) about the phone.

Apple will reportedly unveil (http://www.macrumors.com/2013/08/10/apple-to-unveil-next-generation-iphone-on-september-10/) the next-generation iPhone on September 10, and will likely unveil not only the iPhone 5S but also the lower-cost plastic iPhone 5C. Both devices are also rumored to launch (http://www.macrumors.com/2013/08/20/iphone-5s-and-5c-expected-to-launch-in-japan-on-september-20/) in the first wave of markets on September 20.

Just by looking at the shot of the back with the dual led flash I guess we can assume that most of the current ip5 cases won't fit/will interfere with the new flash, sucks that I'll probably have to get a new case :/

What I want to know, more so than most of the common new features touted is, will the CDMA / Verizon version of the phone contain the required dual antennas to support both voice and LTE data like competitor models do, OR, if there will be hardware support for Voice Over LTE - VOLTE that would achieve the same thing. This is my only regret having switched from AT&T. I also would love to now if VOLTE will solve AT&T's dropped call problems and not create any dropped call problems for carriers in general, which is the main reason I switched.

This is exactly why I sold my iPhone 5 and switched to the HTC One. I'm disappointed by the screen size.

It's not that I think Android is the better OS; it's that the iPhone is just small now. I don't need a screen size like the monstrosity that is the Note 2, but the 4" on the 5 feels cramped when I compare it to the 4.7" on my One. The extra .35" on either size makes a difference, and this is what disappoints me about the iPhone 5S or C or whatever its called.

Apple says they want to give their customers the best one-handed experience, and I get that. And maybe I just have giant hands, but on the One I can reach the top apps without straining my thumbs. I get that not everyone has my sized hands, but my point is the one-handed argument isn't what it was in the past.

It's been a challenge getting my iOS ecosystem ported over to Android, and Android is a hell of a lot less convenient. But here I am, looking at my One, knowing full well that I'm settling for it, but what else can I do? The bigger screen on this phone makes a huge difference. And that's not hyperbole.

Maybe the 6 will have a larger 4.5-4.7" screen. I hope it does. If it does, I'll happily come back.

It is GREAT for video watching and looking at 16:9 photos though.

Yes, did you look at the length of the ribbon cable and the number of pins on the connector at the end? Way longer than the current ribbon cable, even longer than the iPads I believe. And the number of pins on the connector has also increased.

That suggests there's more going on in the home button than previous iPhones, which had a much simpler/shorter cable.

This will never, ever be an intelligent nor popular reason to switch from an iPhone to something else.

Not ever. You may think this kind of thing is happening, because of how susceptible to marketing you are...but it's not. The opposite is still happening (see Android to iPhone switching data from last week).

So there are people who already have an iPhone 5 who are considering getting the 5S? Do you need dual LED flash and a fingerprint sensor in your home button that badly?

This is coming from a guy who went from a 3G, to a 4, to a 5. Apple has never been able to convince me to (literally) buy into this "S" BS.

----------

FALSE

The front of the white iPhone 4 was white. First time they'd changed the front. That's why I waited ten months after the release of the iPhone 4 to get a white one when it finally came out -- I was sick of looking at the exact same thing on the front.

What? You want it kidney shaped? Maybe trapezoidal? It never fails that some yahoo says something dim about innovation regarding a part that has limited potential for change.

Is Steve spinning in his grave?

Are you switching to Android?

Is Apple going to go out of business?

How about saying something smart about Cook's commitment to secrecy? Haven't heard that line for 2-3 posts.

I agree that the iPhone needs a bigger screen size but nothing crazy (as you said) like the Note. The thing for me is, the iPhone is so stable, I will literally purchase any model they make even if other competitors have larger screens, faster procs, etc. sounds back asswards, i was never like this before, but i personally want stability over any of the other bells and whistles.

It would be nice if they had a larger screen for the 5s or the 6 when it comes out, but regardless, i'll be buying one so long as iOS 7 is as stable as 6 has been for me :)

Actually having hubcaps is more getto than regular rims. They shouldn't exist in this day and age. As for champagne, we don't even know if that color is going to be exclusive for the oriental market, a market where gold colored things is seen as fancy. Cultural differences ftw

Sorry, meant to add/edit (coordinating some application deployment this evening ... slightly distracted and wouldn't even had noticed this if my Taptalk notification hadn't made a racket on my iPhone), it's just a peeve of mine, saying rim vs. wheel. I'm sure you meant wheel (and not in the context of a hubcap, which I'm actually old enough to remember when they were "cool" :) )

Absolutely right. I have no need for a 5.5" screen like the Note 2, but there is no reason they can't go to 4.5" It would make a huge difference and I too know many people that complain about that #1 with the iphone.

It is a perfectly valid reason to switch and many have.

Then they should stop using their iPhone and buy a phone with a bigger screen? The vast majority of Android phones with a bigger screen are way cheaper than iPhone anyway, so it's not like money is preventing them from switching.

Personally, I wish I could keep my 3.5" iPhone 4 forever because it's the perfect size for me. If Apple ever releases a 5" iPhone I certainly hope they'll keep the 4" models for people who want a device that fits in their pocket.

This is my problem with posts like this.

iPhone is the perfect size for what it was originally designed to be. A phone.

Not only a phone, but a phone that bucked the trend of micro sized phones. My non-iphone mobile in 2007 was so tiny and slim it is remarkable that I now have (and accept) a phone larger than my some of my first handsets.

In short, it is a phone that allows access to email and casual web surfing & multimedia etc, it cannot and is not designed to replace a computer or laptop (or dare I say... iPad?).

I think most users would still like a phone to fit comfortably in their pockets, rather than a much larger footprint.

I am not opposed to Apple releasing a larger phone as an option, just that I prefer the current size and do not feel that complaints as to it's size is a legitimate reason for abandoning the platform.

If like myself it sounds like you need a larger screen on the go at times, then like me you may have simply needed to buy an iPad mini. Otherwise good luck with your current platform.

Wheels and Rims are used interchangeably... The hub caps (or wheel covers) are used for the Steel wheels... The new alloy wheels don't need those...

I can't believe both the quality and quantity of all these leaked photos lately. Is it me, or are there a lot more of these hi-res shots making the rounds lately, than there ever were, prior to other launches?

Does Tim not care anymore, or has he given up, trying to stem the tide of these leaks. Or, as I'm starting to wonder, are these 'leaksters' doing this with Apple's tacit approval, or even complicity, as a pre-emptive strike, to stem the tide of impatient potential 'defectors'?

I do not see why they would be secret about a phone that basically is the same as the 5. I see nothing amazing about the 5s, the fingerprint reader will be a fun toy for the first few weeks then most will disable it as it will be a pain in the butt and just an extra step to use your phone.

Either combo seems too 1970's to me. Might as well make an Avocado green one.
avocado green I would buy!
Gold + White = Liberace.
Avocado Green + Black = cool.

Just by looking at the shot of the back with the dual led flash I guess we can assume that most of the current ip5 cases won't fit/will interfere with the new flash, sucks that I'll probably have to get a new case :/

Yeah, life is hard...

i hope we see a redesigned iphone next year, enough of this design, but this year was a good time to redesign the iphone (because they have recently released a completely redesigned iOS)

This color reminds me of the original iPhone more than anything else. So yes, Steve WOULD have done it :).

I own that exact exact phone and I use it every day. And it's great. I especially like the feel and weight of it. I hope the 5C can match this, as I don't think I'll be able to afford the 5S. Outright this is, not paying for a contract.

This is true. But it may also be assumed that most iPhone 5 users signed a 2 year contract, and will not be upgrading to the 5S.

Because Apple lacks real innovation and the front looks the same since the iPhone 1.0.

It's just a screen, what else can Apple do to make the front different. It's a rectangle, and I assume it will continue to be a rectangle for many years to come! My guess is there are no front shots because they want to protect/hide the finger print scanner.

This is exactly why I sold my iPhone 5 and switched to the HTC One. I'm disappointed by the screen size.

It's not that I think Android is the better OS; it's that the iPhone is just small now. I don't need a screen size like the monstrosity that is the Note 2, but the 4" on the 5 feels cramped when I compare it to the 4.7" on my One. The extra .35" on either size makes a difference, and this is what disappoints me about the iPhone 5S or C or whatever its called.

Maybe the 6 will have a larger 4.5-4.7" screen. I hope it does. If it does, I'll happily come back.

This is where I'm at, and why I swapped my i5 for an S4. It dwarfs the i5 but it isn't too big for me. Android isn't that hard to get used to and it's come a long way in recent years. I still have my iPad and when I'm home I use it more than the S4 as I still prefer iOS, but only just. to me there isn't much in it when you compare the two OS's these days. Apps is a different story but the gap isn't what it was.
An iphone the size of the S4 (no bigger) would get me to come back to iOS. I thought I was happy with the 4" on the i5, until I had a play with the S4, the extra screen real estate makes a big difference.

Apple says they want to give their customers the best one-handed experience, and I get that. And maybe I just have giant hands, but on the One I can reach the top apps without straining my thumbs. I get that not everyone has my sized hands, but my point is the one-handed argument isn't what it was in the past.

It's been a challenge getting my iOS ecosystem ported over to Android, and Android is a hell of a lot less convenient. But here I am, looking at my One, knowing full well that I'm settling for it, but what else can I do? The bigger screen on this phone makes a huge difference. And that's not hyperbole.

Maybe the 6 will have a larger 4.5-4.7" screen. I hope it does. If it does, I'll happily come back.

This is exactly why I'm switching to the iphone; the android competitors are getting too huge! I want to be able to carry the phone in my pocket, I dont want to have to get a purse to carry the thing like a laptop or tablet. So happy the 5s is the same size (though that was expected).
Once you get a case on the phones these days they're bulky enough. Not only that, the big screen and size is a sneaky way to 'upgrade' the internal workings of the phone without the difficult engineering it takes to shrink parts and pieces.

cheers.
