Video Comparison of 'iPhone 5' Nano-SIM Tray and Buttons to iPhone 4S Parts

Photos of what has been claimed to be a nano-SIM tray for the next-generation iPhone have surfaced several times this month, and repair firm SmartPhone Medic now posts a video comparison (via Cydia Blog) of several next-generation iPhone parts including the nano-SIM tray and external buttons compared to the corresponding parts from the iPhone 4S.

The comparison of SIM trays demonstrates how the micro-SIM used in the iPhone 4S/4 does not fit in the smaller tray that is reportedly being used in the next-generation iPhone. Like the nano-SIM tray, other parts shown in the video including the sleep/wake button, volume buttons, and mute switch are notably of a "gunmetal grey" color distinct from the silver color seen on the iPhone 4S. The video also shows the home button that was the first next-generation iPhone part to leak back in late April.


Apple is expected to introduce the next-generation iPhone with a media event on September 12, with the major new features of the device being a taller 4-inch display and a redesign resulting in a taller but thinner form factor.

Update: The video has been removed.

Update 2: The video is now available once again.

How times change. I remember back in the day when Apple would completely surprise us with each shiny new iProduct. We'd all ooh and aaah at the keynote, and the next day we'd gaze at the innards on some tear-down website.

Now it's all backwards. :)

the mini prefix comes before the micro prefix. Moreover, minisims were a thing too. They are what we had before the iphone 4 came out but were simplified to just sim because not much attention had been paid prior to apple caring about them.

Should macrumours stop calling it the "iphone 5"?

Radio


No, not at all. iPhone 5 has been the unofficial name used by every news outlet, website and tech blogger on the planet since the 4 was released. It's the iPhone 5 until apple announces the official name.

Should Radio stop being redundant by signing hs name to every post?
