Taller 'iPhone 5' Cases Begin to Appear for Sale

tall
Smaller bottom dock, and headphone jack

Cydia Blog notes the appearance of "iPhone 5" cases from TVC-Mall that correspond to circulating rumors about the next generation iPhone.

The case design lines up with the many part leaks and schematics that have been floating around for the past several months.

IPHONE5 601B 2
The appearance of case designs shouldn't be that surprising given the numerous leaks we've already seen. The cases, however, do represent some small level of confidence by Chinese manufacturers that the next generation iPhone will match the circulating rumors. This includes a slightly taller/thinner design with a smaller bottom dock connector and a bottom-placed headphone jack.

The next generation iPhone is already said to be in production for an expected fall launch.

Taken as a group, these case makers tend to be right more accurately than the reporters and analysts. If you start seeing any other companies doing this, consider it confirmed.

Except the case makers were dead wrong about the iPhone last year

Aww man. Don't get me wrong, the iPhone 4 and 4S design is great. But after 2 years, I'm used to the usual design upgrade, not just taller. I sure hope Apple is fooling us into thinking this is the design and come up with the actual design at the event. =\

Of course they line up. That's the way these case designs work. Reminds me of the chicken/egg dilemma :)

Except for last year when even casemate was producing cases that were dead wrong.

Edit: I guess I should read all the posts before being redundant.

There were no part leaks for those teardrop cases last year.

I don't understand the magsafe obsession. The phone doesn't weigh enough for that concept to even work. If you kick the cord, your phone will go flying even if it's magsafe.
