Expansive Photo Gallery Highlights Numerous Alleged iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C Parts

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”.

You’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!

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.

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.

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).

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

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