First Alleged Part Photos from iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 Surface




French site Nowhereelse.fr shares [Google translation] a pair of photos of what the original source claims are speaker enclosures for both the upcoming iPhone 5S and a future iPhone 6. The two parts are similar in appearance both to each other and to the corresponding iPhone 5 part, but do contain several differences.

It is of course impossible to tell for certain whether the parts are indeed legitimate and whether they are intended for the upcoming iPhone models as claimed. Nowehereelse.fr has published a number of accurate photos in the past, but typically obtains the photos by scouring web postings from Asia and thus the photos typically come from a variety of sources that make it difficult to determine their reliability.

it's funny how people can leak pictures of future parts

but these pics are always with a krappy quality

if one can really access to these parts for real, i don't see why picture quality could be so bad

even the cheapest smartphone can take better pics

Ah, it never ends.

And here you were thinking Mr. Potatohead's glasses were functional. They're just props; the eye of the potato is actually quite keen.

Ah, and we repeat.

Every year it's the same thing. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy it and macrumors does a fine job of reporting it. But I'm getting tired of the rinse and repeat, we were here last year and we'll be here next.

Not trolling but just my initial thought.

They resemble the image quality of my Galaxy Nexus, come to think of it...

I'm starting to wonder if i should stop reading MacRumor and other sites like that, just to be more excited when apple announces the new device. it seems everything leaks out early.

The blurry effect makes them look more authentic.

Definitely. By the time iPhone 6 launches that part will be obsolete.

My thought is if they had access, why are the new parts in poor quality but the five is perfect.

And that looks more like the home button piece that feel out of my roommates iPhone when he dropped it and busted the front totally apart.

The issue here is the implication of them allegedly having parts to two generations of phone. That would seemingly prove that there will be two phones released this year. And since they have the information now one of them must be coming out soon

Possibility. The existence of which would imply it is coming out very soon. Validating the March rumors

As for the whole they need to do something big, I disagree. That is the talk of analysts wanting to drive the stock price down. Given the public love etc Steve held taking a year or so to just hold steady and get comfortable in the situation is not uncalled for. And then, as the new components like Haswell come out, begin the typical slow Apple climb.

It's most likely the same 4 inch screen as the iPhone 5. If you want bigger for your apps and such that's what the iPad and iPad mini are for.

5S... so expect a faster processor and a slightly different camera? Last big thing to happen to a iPhone was the Retina display. Its the same old these days but hoping iOS7 is a BIG change. I use Android too, Google aint afraid to change things. Remember the days when Apple had those kind of balls? Each to their own anyways.

i think the 4 inch screen on the i5 makes all the difference. the 16:9 aspect ratio aswell is amazing.. compared to the 3.5 inch screen iphone its such a big difference

Totally agree. We all know that Apple's primary goal is to make their products faster and thinner. It's getting really tiresome.

What more do you expect from a simple generation upgrade? That is basically what the 3GS and 4S were. The 5S won't be any different.

Would a 5s with fingerprint detection and nfc. Be interesting enough?

I personally think if they get the fingerprint thing right .. It would be game changer.. And open up a world of possibilities!

But must admit.. Dont like the aspect ratio on i5.
My vote is fio 3 models all old aspect ratio
3.5, 4, 4.5 "

I realize the product refresh cycle Apple uses with the iPhone, but Apple only has ONE phone...and to give it a slight speed bump is disappointing. The Samsung Galaxy 4 is coming out and its going to be a nice piece of kit...Apple needs to be even more competitive...

I say that as an Apple customer and as an Apple shareholder
