    Sonny Dickson has posted a new gallery 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".

    The shots notably show the back housing of the alleged "gold" iPhone 5S, which appears to be similar to parts that surfaced 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 and seen in a leaked prototype. The shots also show the rear shell of a blue iPhone 5C complete with separated parts, all of which is consistent with prior reports and leaks about the phone.

    Apple will reportedly unveil 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 in the first wave of markets on September 20.

    I'm not a fan of Champagne/White color combination. Hopefully Apple also makes a Champagne/Black version...

    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 :/

    Hopefully we'll not see any leaks of the home button/fingerprint sensor, so there's still one surprise left in the keynote..!


    Errr... is the home button different enough from the iPhone 5 button to suggest a fingerprint sensor is incorporated?

    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.

    An iPhone 4-ish two-tone black and champagne would have looked better than white and champagne. I miss the two-tone black option.

    Probably because the front is just a screen ... ?

    Yes, but let's look at yet more photos of the SIM tray and volume buttons! :rolleyes: This won't end until September 10th so we better get used to it.

    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.

    I am testing a Samsung Galaxy S4 for a month and notice I have to adjust my hand to reach from top to bottom.

    It is GREAT for video watching and looking at 16:9 photos though.
    *and makes my iPhone 4 feel tiny*

    geez, how long until we get a Jersey Shore approved Ed Hardy iPhone?
    Seriously, I actually prefer that blue iPhone over the "champagne" version.
    But then I don't have spinners on my rims, and what rims my car does have involve these old-timey gadgets called "hubcaps".

    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.

    Believe it or not, there are visitors perusing the site. Old news for us, yes, but potentially these leaks can be new for them.
